I got involved with Impact Teen Drivers almost 5 years ago (at the very beginning of the organization!) because I lost friends to car crashes in high school. I helped in the office before I moved away from the headquarters city. I still help at community events, such as at high school presentations, safety fairs, and education conferences that are around my area. The Impact Teen Drivers staff and volunteers are so incredibly energetic and dedicated to the cause! I have stuck around for so long because I work with people who care about saving lives and who are passionate about reaching out to teens about the most dangerous thing they do- drive. Executive Director Kelly Browning is so, so motivated and creative on how to continue to be relevant and fresh where many non-profits become stagnant. Education Outreach Coordinator Martha Tessmer lost her son to reckless and distracted driving. She is incredibly inspirational to both the volunteers/staff and the teens and parents she interacts with. I have learned so much about running a non-profit, public relations, and just life as a whole from all the staff/volunteers. I know I have changed lives and driving behaviors while working with Impact Teen Drivers!
