For the ninth year, Clayton State University’s Office of Community Standards has been awarded a $7,000 grant to participate in the Georgia Young Adult Program of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The GOHS Young Adult Program addresses young adult driver crashes, injuries, and fatalities and partners with colleges and universities throughout the state to implement the GYAP. This program has proven to be successful using strategies such as peer education, providing educational speakers to schools, and encouraging schools to develop creative, innovative techniques to reduce young adult crashes, injuries and fatalities in their communities.
Clayton State University is a returning grantee in our young adult program and we’re excited to see what 2019 brings for them and the state of Georgia’s young motoring public,” said GOHS Communications Manager Robert Hydrick.
The GYAP program at Clayton State University coordinates events such as impaired driving prevention programs during National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, spring break, and graduation. The GYAP program also collaborates with several campus departments including Housing and Residence Life, Clayton State Athletics, Public Safety, University Health Services, and Counseling and Psychological Services.
The grant year for this award will be October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019
