"Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council. It is designed to prevent the #1 killer of teens, automobile crashes. SC Alive at 25 is taught by off-duty Deputy Sheriffs, Municipal Police Officers and SC Highway Patrol Officers. The course is delivered in one 4.5 hour program which focuses on the behaviors, decision-making and risks facing young drivers every time they get behind the wheel.
Since South Carolina's program kicked off in 2007, the state's death toll among drivers 15-24 has dropped by 37%. This reduction is amazing, but one life lost is still one too many. The council developed the Zero Hero campaign to emphasize South Carolina's goal of Zero traffic fatalities among young drivers."
Many schools are requiring students to take the Alive@25 class and it will also become a requirement for CHS students next school year in order to purchase a parking pass for school. There is a $35 fee for the course, which can be taken anywhere, but will be offered at CHS and GFHS soon.
The Alive@ 25 Class will be offered at Chester High School on the following dates at 3:30:
September 21, October 19, November 16, January 18, February 15, March 15, and April 19.
All dates in August at CHS are full, but the course may be taken at another location.
