RWJ Safety Ambassadors
This program links local high school students with 1st and 2nd graders in Middlesex County to provide educational presentations in the areas of injury prevention and safety. The effectiveness of this teaching method is measured through pre- and post-tests and presentation evaluations. This is an opportunity for high school students to volunteer in a leadership capacity and act as role models for younger children in their community. The program makes use of the National Fire Protection Association’s Risk Watch curriculum, supplemented with materials from Safe Kids Worldwide (www.safekids.org).
