Thanks to a three-year grant from The UPS Foundation to BGCA, UPS Road Code will be taught to an estimated 1,200 teens in 2009 at Boys & Girls Clubs in 10 U.S. cities: Atlanta; Los Angeles; Dallas; Omaha, Neb.; Little Rock, Ark.; Oakland, Calif.; New York; Washington; Chicago; and New Orleans. The program is expected to roll out to other markets in 2010.
UPS Road Code provides teens with four sessions of classroom-based instruction and time behind the wheel of a computerized driving simulator. About 150 UPS employees will serve as trained volunteer instructors for the program.
