Boys and Girls Club offering new program designed to help teen drivers


Thursday, October 27, 2022 - The Boys and Girls Club of Sequoyah County is helping teens lower their car insurance and become safe drivers with a free program called The UPS Road Code.


Teenagers 13-18 years old can take advantage of the 5-hour course on November 21, December 19, or December 20. Each class will be held at the Sallisaw Boys and Girls Club from 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m. A free lunch will be provided to all participants.


The UPS Road Code is a five-hour curriculum that teaches the same driving and safety skills the company teaches its drivers. The curriculum is taught by a Boys and Girls Club staff member who is trained specifically to facilitate the program.


Participants will be tested on their knowledge of safe driving in a variety of situations, such as distracted driving, impaired driving, and being a safe passenger.


Classes are 100% virtually simulated with the Boys and Girls Club's new UPS Road Code VR headsets. The simulators are fully interactive, complete with voice commands and animation.


After completion of the class, teens will receive a certificate along with a Liberty Mutual insurance discount paper. Shelter Insurance and Farm Bureau also offer a discount for teens who complete the program.


All classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis.


For more information or to sign up your teen, contact Crystal Beller at 918-775-4659 or email bgcseq@msn.com.
