MANILA: Honda Cars Philippines Inc (HCPI) is running another series of Teen Smart Road Safety Seminars for high school students.
KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER
What is the purpose of the Honda Cars Philippines Teen Smart seminars?
Through Teen Smart, HCPI wants high school students to familiarize themselves with road safety initiatives, whether as pedestrians or as vehicle passengers.
Where will the Teen Smart seminars take place?
Teen Smart will be held online for high school students in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
From November, the seminars will continue to be held online until May 2022 for students of public schools in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna, said HCPI. The Teen Smart programs will be delivered by instructors from the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC), who have also received training from Honda Motor Japan.
As part of Honda’s âSafety for Allâ road safety advocacy, the programs will educate young people about road safety and share practical tips they can apply as pedestrians or vehicle passengers, explained HCPI. Another goal of Teen Smart is to provide driving instructions. to students too.
By the end of the course, HCPI aims for students to develop what it calls a “road safety mindset”, or their understanding of human-vehicle-environment relationships.
HCPI has conducted road safety programs for adolescents, the previous one taking place in March 2019 in partnership with Sta. Rosa Department of Education (DepEd Sta. Rosa), Sta. Rosa Local Government, Honda Philippines, Inc (HPI) and HSDC.
In 2004, the YES movement (Youth Movement for the Environment and Safety) also promoted road safety through seminars / workshops and competitions. YES Move was an earlier version of Teen Smart, produced with assistance from the Land Transportation Office.
For families, HCPI led the One Honda Road Safety (1HRS) in 2017.
“Reaching many schools even beyond Sta. Rosa, thousands of young adults have already participated in the Teen Smart program,” HCPI said in a statement.
The latest Teen Smart program was opened thanks to the virtual signing of a memorandum of understanding held last November between the following program partners: Manuela S. Tolentino of DepEd Sta. Rosa, Vicenta Balarbar from HCPI and Gerry Datario from HPI.
HCPI invites the public to visit its website to learn more about the Teen Smart program and all of the company’s other sustainability initiatives.
