center for defensive driving

Mission Statement

Our primary mission is youth development in the States of Oregon and Washington. We do that in three ways:

1. Interactive traffic safety safety presentations at high schools.

2. Drug and alcohol presentations at high schools.

3. We have a registered therapy dog named Stella. Stella visits children at elementary and middle schools to facilitate reading programs. Her participation is a boost to their self-confidence and socialization, which improves their reading ability. Stella also goes to hospice and hospitals to cheer up patients, visitors and staff.

We reached 12,000 people this year.

Teen Driver Safety

We are passionate about teen driver safety.
A new driver is ten times more likely to get involved in a traffic collision, than a driver with one year of driving experience.
We give free presentations on Teen Driver Safety and Drugs/Alcohol/DUI at high schools in OR & WA.

Our driver safety presentations include slides, photos and dash cam video of moving violations, traffic collisions, reckless driving, DUI, seat belts, distracted driving, etc.

Our Drugs/Alcohol/DUI presentations include alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, the opioid crisis, critical thinking and a DUI goggle demo.

What we can do for your high school is:

  • Host an assembly for hundreds of students.
  • Host a Teen Driver Safety Rally at lunch.
  • Give presentations in the classroom (Health, etc.)
  • Host a Teen Driver Safety Night at 7pm (parents & teens).
  • Host a table at a school event (Homecoming, etc.)
