UPS Road Code

The Southside Boys & Girls Club would like to introduce a new program for our teams which is called UPS Road Code. Since 2009, The UPS Foundation has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to deliver UPS Road Code, a program based in large part on the same safety training used with UPS’s own drivers. Approximately 125 UPS employees trained as volunteer instructors teach UPS Road Code’s safe driving techniques to help teens “Drive Change.”
UPS Road Code focuses on different safety principles throughout the program, from basic instruction to the consequences of risky behaviors such as talking on cell phones, texting or drinking while driving. During the program, teens learn safe driving skills and practice the skills on a driving simulator. The driving simulator features a computer screen that serves as a windshield to the program’s interactive animation, a steering wheel, and life-like gas and brake pedals. The program is handle on Monday & Wednesdays from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Sign up Today!
