Mazda Foundation Supports Student-led Campaigns to Reduce Distracted Driving
Over 4,000 students and community members are participating in student-led service events developed in partnership with the Mazda Foundation in nine ASAS chapters to increase awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.
“All-Stars bring such creative approaches to spreading the message that distracted driving is a serious community concern,” said Tamara Mlynarczyk, Manager, Public Affairs, Mazda North American Operations. “From rallies to social media campaigns and parent engagement nights, ASAS Youth Advisory Board Members are mobilizing their peers and demonstrating incredible social responsibility. The Mazda Foundation is proud to support these young civic leaders.”
ASAS’ Youth Advisory Board Members’ distracted driving events mark the culmination of a year of service learning which began in July 2014 at a student leadership and advocacy training summit in Washington D.C. made possible by the Mazda Foundation, the exclusive sponsor of ASAS’ Life Service Action (LSA) national initiative.
