Distracted Driving Programs
Due to COVID-19 distance-learning and stay-at-home recommendations across the nation, all 2021 spring and summer Augmented Reality Distracted Driving Education Simulator (ARDDES) and Reality Check Vaping Awareness & Nicotine Prevention Program events have been postponed. Thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners, PEERS Foundation school programs and community events will resume once current emergency orders have been lifted.
Staying at the forefront of interactive education and innovative technology
At the PEERS Foundation, we inspire young people to lead healthy and successful lives through our innovative and interactive learning programs. Our award-winning programs cover a multitude of areas including driving safety, health and wellness education, and career development.
Losing someone to distracted driving is near and dear to our hearts. We want to help create a shift in the attitudes of young drivers and inspire them to make the right choices.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in ages 16 to 29.
The National Safety Council has reported that cell phone use while driving leads to a staggering 1.6 million vehicle crashes each year.
Numbers like these are exactly why the PEERS Foundation has set out to teach young people about the dangers of distracted driving.
Using the country’s first and only augmented reality distracted driving education simulator (ARDDES), we’ve been able to provide young people with a hands-on, realistic experience of distracted driving.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in ages 16 to 29. Smart devices and activities like texting while driving have caused driver fatalities to rise at unprecedented levels.
The PEERS Foundation’s “Reality Check” Vaping Prevention Game Show brings an exciting yet informative, hands-on event in a game show format to your school.
Michael and Scott Seymore formed the PEERS Foundation to help bring educational programs to young people throughout the United States. With years of experience in event design and construction, booking, management and execution, he has spearheaded the success of the PEERS Foundation.
We give students the tools needed to make the right decisions when it comes to critical impasses, such as drug and alcohol use, tobacco education and prevention, and cyberbullying. Through our interactive programs, we see young people develop a sense of camaraderie as they are inspired to build healthy and successful lives.
When you partner with the PEERS Foundation, we’ll be able to bring our programs to schools across the nation to raise awareness and inspire change.

I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
I honestly didn’t know how our students would respond to this opportunity. This major issue is too important, and the offer was too good, to turn down. I actually teach a Bible class later in the school day, so I asked for feedback from students who had experienced the simulation, and I received enthusiastically positive responses. One unanticipated outcome — the 10% discount on insurance when a student participates — only sweetened the feedback. Please keep up your great work with an issue
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
Thank you for the wonderful job Mike and his team did. The students really enjoyed the presentation. I heard many positive comments and they seemed very engaged. I also appreciate the fact that your team did a great job being on time and setting up.
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
Mike and his team were amazing to work with for the General Motors UofM recruiting events. Mike and his team were engaging, flexible and educated on the simulator.
That crew that came in was professional and efficient. They did a great job with a serious topic while at the same time providing a unique activity that engaged the students.
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
