Compass Motors-Volkswagen of Middletown, NY is proud to partner with Survive the Drive to promote young driver automotive safety to high school students. 


Survive the Drive is an independent, not for profit, educational organization that provides risk awareness and safe driving presentations to high schools and community groups. Survive the Drive has trained more than 120,000 young adults in driving safety.


“We are proud to offer these important safety programs free of charge to Middletown, NY schools,” said Gordy Wagner, Vice President of Compass Motors - Volkswagen. “When I learned about the great work being done by Survive the Drive, I knew Compass could help provide support to our local schools and community. As a father of two, I value any safety programs that educate the youth and help keep them safe.”


Compass Motors–Volkswagen’s partnership with Survive the Drive will officially kicks off January 1, 2013.  The partnership will include sponsored assemblies at local high schools and community venues. Compass Motors - Volkswagen will donate $1 to Survive the Drive for each new “like” (up to 2,000) on their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Compass-Motors/22434990034) from December 2012 through January 2013 as part of the partnership with Survive the Drive.


Survive the Drive’s unique approach focuses on the science and behaviors of a car crash – before, during and after.  By understanding the conscious strategies that can prevent these terrible accidents, we empower today’s youth to make the right decisions behind the wheel,” said Bob Green, Executive Director of Survive the Drive. “Every life we save is worth it. We teach the how and the why through special interactive presentations to reinforce long-term positive driving behaviors.”
