We believe that when young people have the skills and knowledge they need, they can undertake real road safety action in their countries and act as 'agents of change'. YOURS has global experience in workshop delivery and our workshops are highly recommended from both our participants and collaborating partners.
Our workshops are multi-award winning. YOURS' workshops received global recognition and was award Best Road Safety Initiative by the Fundacion MAPFRE's Global Social Innovation Awards. The Award was handed out by Queen Sofia of Spain.
In 2017, our workshops won the Prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
Our road safety workshops have actively engaged youth from all around the world. From Kenya to Belize, Oman to Saint Lucia, participants who have undertaken the YOURS experience in workshop training experience road safety education in a whole new youth friendly format. See why our workshops have a completely unique methodology.
Campaigning is one of our specialities! Our experience in global campaigning has seen us at the forefront of delivering some of the world's most recognisable road safety efforts. For example, YOURS has been at the forefront of designing and managing the #SaveKidsLives campaign, which gathered a massive momentum of supporters from all corners of the globe.
YOURS is an official member of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration. The Collaboration spans inter-governmental representation such as the World Health Organization, the private sector, academia, civil society organiztions and multi-lateral organizations. We bring a youth representation to the collaboration.
In global development, we have been heavily involved in the youth push for road safety targets to be included for the Global Goals; the world's sustainable development agenda. As the only youth led, youth orientated global NGO for road safety, we take our role to empower young people to become strong advocates for road safety and create real asks for road safety action.
Young people around the world are the backbone of our organization. Thousands of youth around the world act as agents of change by being role models, road safety activists, campaigners and advocates. We call these youth our YOURS Youth Champions. From the Regional Champions that represent every region of the world as spokespeople for road safety, National Champions that represent their country, champions trained through YOURS workshops to individual youth champions that embody the spirit of road safety. Our Youth Champions take action every day for road safety. You can become a youth champion too!
