The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety Alliance Academy offers state-of-the-art tailored training program, both online and in person, for 10-15 Alliance Member NGOs staff selected as Alliance Advocates. Online webinar courses gives both Alliance Advocates and Alliance members the opportunity to learn from leaders in the road safety field under various technical areas of interest to our members. Selected Alliance Advocates are self-starters who possess experience, dedication and willingness to make a change. Through individualized mentoring and training, their skills will be nurtured and their expertise will grow as they advocate for risk areas. The road safety advocates will become role models for other Alliance members, governments, and their communities in these key risk areas and actively advocate for change.
Current and Past Initiatives:
Crash Course in Key Risk Areas is a collection of resources, key concepts, and expert-lead webinars on the key road safety risk areas. The crash course is open to both Alliance members and the general community to learn more about helmets, drunk driving, speeding, seatbelts, child restraints, distraction and drowsy driving. Sign up for the webinars and find additional information about the crash course HERE.
Alliance Advocates are rigorously selected Alliance members who demonstrate the determination to make a difference and to benefit from an intensive, tailored training program. In August 2016 the first cohort of Advocates traveled to Memphis, US. The Alliance Advocates are a key investment for the Alliance over the years to come and the Alliance will expect a significant return of investment from this core group.
