DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation
Car crashes are the #1 cause of death among teenagers - DCH Auto Group's new and used car dealerships in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and California are working to change that.
DCH Auto Group's dealerships are committed to helping young drivers stay safe. The DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation
is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from teen related auto crashes by promoting safe driving through greater awareness, education and advocacy directed to teens and their parents. DCH Auto Group believes in doing more than selling new and pre-owned cars, and we've made this Foundation a priority.
The Foundation's approach is to educate teens about smart decisions and safe driving and provide parents with the tools they need to set the standards with their teenage drivers. SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions)
The cornerstone of our program is our affiliation with Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)
. SADD, the nation's leading peer-to-peer youth education, prevention, and activism organization, is committed to empowering young people to lead initiatives in their schools and communities.
Founded in 1981, today SADD has thousands of chapters in middle schools, high schools, and colleges. SADD highlights prevention of many destructive behaviors and attitudes that are harmful to young people, including underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, and teen violence and suicide.
DCH Honda of Temecula has launched a SADD chapter at Chaparral High School
in Temecula. Our goal is to help Chaparral High School develop successful a sustainable chapter, and to raise awareness about important behavioral decisions when behind the wheel of a car. Each year, DCH Honda of Temecula sends students and educators to attend the SADD National Conference
in addition to providing both financial support and volunteer support from its employees.
