Boys and Girls Clubs of So. NV announces Automotive Life Skills Clinics are now closed.
We will update you on upcoming event dates and locations if you are interested; Register below.
“These are vital lessons in the proper care and feeding, operation and function of the car.
Automotive Life Skills are truly life lessons every driver will use for the rest of their driving lives.
The classes include how to save money on teen driver insurance premiums, legal responsibilities and liabilities,
and the correct procedure when being pulled over by law enforcement officers,” offers Sarah Lee Marks, the program coordinator.
The teens participating in the 4 hour program will receive 3 credit hours of Drivers Education in the form of a completion certificate.
They will also be eligible to participate in future ZTF events including Drivers Edge.
Empowering teens to be able to take care of the car and themselves in emergency situations is a huge life lesson,
and one we all hope they never have to use.
All too often we hear the sad aftermath stories of things not going well because of a lack of knowledge.
These clinics are great teaching opportunities for parents and their loved ones.”
Attendees will be fully involved in lots of fun, interactive and hands-on experiences under the hood, behind the wheel and more.

ABOUT ZERO TEEN FATALITIES
Zero Teen Fatalities educates young drivers about the importance of being safe behind the wheel.
Zero Teen Fatalities increases awareness of the impact of seat-belt usage and the dangers of impaired
and distracted driving, as well as speeding and aggressive driving,
which are all critical safety issues for this age group.
Our goal is to empower teens to spread the word among their peers about the consequences of unsafe driving
behaviors and in turn, save lives.
GET INVOLVED Zero Teen Fatalities uses a combination of school and classroom presentations, assemblies,
administrator/educator meetings, parent presentations, driver’s education classes, and other venues and
events to spread awareness about teen driving issues. The program hosts a variety of challenges to encourage
teens to develop and spread traffic safety messages to their classmates, friends and family members.
Compete against high schools, advisors and teens! Your school earns points for every student registered
and spreads traffic safety messages to their classmates, friends and family via their social media profiles.
Registered students will also have the opportunity to participate in challenges to earn points throughout the school year.
In April, top schools, advisors and students will be invited to attend a special,
recognition weekend to include an invite-only Driver’s Edge event, where they will be recognized for their outstanding work.
