In 2007 Steer Clear developed a sponsorship programme which offers the business commuinity the opportunity to sponsor Driver Education in a school or Youth Reach Centre in their area. The sponsorship can be anonymous or in public parnership and enables students, who would not otherwise have an opportunity, to complete the Steer Clear driver education programme and who are at the highest risk of serious road accident.
The silver sponsorship programme allows the sponsor the opportunity to align themselves with the school or youth reach for promotional purposes.
To date approximatley 20 schools and youthreach centres have benifited from sponsorship.
The Steer Clear Silver Sponsorship Programme allows companies, local bodies and agencies the opportunity to make a real difference to the long term safety of young people on our roads.
The Steer Clear Silver Sponsor package provides targeted exposure to successive students from one or more Youth Reach Centres or Secondary Schools and affiliation with Ireland’s premiere driving education programme.
The silver sponsorship programme offers the sponsor the opportunity to align themselves with the school or youth reach for promotional purposes.
Sponsors may also be eligable to become signatories of the European Road Safety Charter.
