Arrive Alive Campaign

Arrive's a whole vibe!

Registration is NOW open for the 2023 Arrive Alive Campaign in partnership with Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, and State Farm! Arrive Alive will kick off March 6 and continue through May 31! During this campaign, schools and youth groups work to promote safe driving and passenger behaviors among youth and teens during the high-risk warm weather months.

According to statistics, the months between May and September are the most dangerous for young drivers. During this time period, teens tend to engage in more risky driving behaviors, putting them at risk to be involved in a traffic crash.

Arrive Alive registration is FREE and includes FREE educational materials, incentive items, project ideas, and resources! Through Arrive Alive, YOVASO’s goal is to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities among young drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists during the high-risk spring and summer months through educational and awareness programs conducted by youth and teens. The campaign is offered as a competition to schools and youth groups that would like to compete for cash prizes, but non-competing schools and youth groups are highly encouraged to participate as well! To learn more about the campaign, download the High School (Teen) Letter or Middle School (Youth) Letter. You may also refer to the Campaign Overview or the High School or Middle School Campaign Packets below. The Packets have additional resources and programs to implement a successful Arrive Alive campaign in your school or community.
