Get Involved


Some teens think it’s not cool to where a seatbelt. AWYS middle and high school student ambassadors understand the life-saving importance of wearing a seatbelt. They serve as influencers on their campuses through awareness campaigns and projects. Ambassadors earn service hours, and are eligible for scholarships from AWYS for all of their volunteer work on and off campus.

What can I do?
Start an ambassador service club at your school!


  1. Set life-long behaviors by always wearing YOUR seatbelt, and don’t put your car in gear until all your passengers have theirs on too.
  2. Establish the expectation that your teen always wears their seatbelt, and insist their passengers do too.
  3. Explain WHY their safety is so very important to you.

What can I do?
Share statistics and tips with your teen about safe driving


Students attending middle and high schools who actively promote seatbelt use suffer fewer automobile related tragedies. Support your students by starting an AWYS ambassador service club on your campus. We’ll help you get started and support your clubs with annual financial donations, AWYS products, connections for other teen safe driving opportunities on campus, student volunteer opportunities and project guidance.

AWYS club members receive service hours and are eligible to apply for our annual scholarship.

Share statistics and tips with your teen about safe driving


Each year AWYS is pleased to award scholarships to deserving high school seniors who have served as seatbelt safety ambassadors, on their high school campuses. Graduating AWYS service club members submit creative ideas designed to influence their peers to always wear their seatbelts. They also write essays describing what they have personally done to raise seatbelt safety awareness and why seatbelt use matters to them.
