Teen Safety Enterprises

Raising awareness for Texting and Driving           

Teen Safety Enterprises is a Junior Achievement Company at McGavock High School that is asking CORPORATE PARTNERS and INDIVIDUALS  to PURCHASE KEYCHAINS for NASHVILLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS to raise awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.  


Successfully raising awareness with ALL students in MNPS will change the way Nashville thinks about Texting and Driving. 


There are 20K students in Metro Nashville Public Schools. Support the Teen Safety Don't Text and Drive Initiative to help save the lives of teens and make Nashville a safer place to live and drive. 


In 2011 23% of Car Accidents involved cell phones - 1.3 MM car accidents

13 % of Teens admitted to texting while driving when they were involved in an accident.

A car at 55 MPH covers the length of a football field in 5 seconds...the time it takes to read a text message. 

1 in 5 Drivers of all ages admit to surfing the web while driving. 

Support this initiative for Metro Nashville High School students and we can save lives in Nashville and make the road safer for all drivers.
