University of Virginia Level-I Trauma Center presents "Behind the Scenes", a FREE teen driver and parent education program. Behind the Scenes is an interactive program developed by the UVA Trauma Program that promotes safety and education for the next generation of drivers, and encourages parental involvement.

Teen participants partake in interactive and unique simulations that allow them to see, from a Trauma team member’s perspective, what a motor vehicle crash code is like. Parents receive professional assistance for how to mentor their new driver, create a driving contract, and get tough insurance questions answered. Both teens and parents then hear firsthand from trauma survivors in our area about their experiences with motor vehicle crashes caused by destructive drivers.

Bringing parents and teens together to the table helps to make our program unique and effective as it creates a space for a productive dialogue. Together we can work to protect the next generation of drivers from trauma!
