As Monterey County’s Level II Trauma Center, we witness firsthand the tragedies caused by motor vehicle crashes, the number one killer of American teens. Entire communities are devastated by the actions of one person who makes a poor choice behind the wheel while driving distracted, reckless or impaired. Natividad is uniquely positioned to understand this dire problem and the importance of educating young drivers. The In One Instant program was designed specifically for this purpose.
In One Instant is an award-winning, emotionally charged program that empowers teens to make smart choices and save lives. Informed by years of research in high schools and their communities, working with teens, parents, health and safety professionals, educators, counselors and psychologists, In One Instant speaks directly to teens in an honest and realistic way. It involves teens on an emotional level, bonds them to their community, and fosters change from within.
