Cub Scout Automotive Safety Patch Program

safekids.gif

Safe Kids Buckle Up and Chevrolet have teamed up with the Boy Scouts of America to teach Cub Scouts and their parents and caregivers about safety in and around vehicles.

These hands-on educational activities are conducted by Safe Kids Coalitions and held at Chevrolet dealerships designed to educate families with older children — ages 7 to 10 — about being safe inside and outside of moving and parked vehicles. After the Scouts successfully complete all of the educational stations, they are presented with their Automotive Safety Patch.

Safe Kids has received an overwhelming response to the advertisement in Boy’s Life Magazine. We have created this site to expedite the process of matching up interested packs and Safe Kids coalitions, and Chevrolet dealerships.

Safe Kids coalitions are independently operated and unfortunately, if there is not a Safe Kids coalition or chapter located near the interested Cub Scout pack, it may not be possible to hold an Automotive Safety Patch event at your location.
