Young Driver Awareness Program (RYDA)
RYDA is a series of practical and powerful workshops for high school students that challenge students to change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives.
RYDA focuses on cognition development, building and increasing social competency and resilience and motivating low risk behaviour. Facilitators work with students to develop and practise personalised strategies and life skills which will help them respond positively to challenges on the road, both as drivers and highly influential passengers.
RYDA is an essential road safety platform for young drivers and their passengers – it doesn’t come from driving lessons, books or the school classroom. However, RYDA does support school curricula, giving teachers an important toolbox of additional resources and allowing them to harness the motivation and competencies taken from the RYDA day to enhance their classroom curriculum based lessons.
The Rotary Club of Frankston supports this program by providing some funding to participating schools.
