The SmartDrive Foundation provides assembly and student participation programs to all high schools in Delaware; Maryland’s Eastern Shore Counties – Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester; and these Pennsylvania counties – Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery and York.

SmartDrive DWI: Driving with Intelligence Fall Semester assembly programs are focused on newer drivers, typically High School Juniors – to refresh their learning from driving education programs and to encourage coaching during their Graduated Driver License periods.

In the Spring Semester, SmartDrive DWI: Driving with Intelligence assembly program is directed toward High School Seniors emphasizing  to the dangers that Teen Drivers and Passengers can encounter during the Prom and Graduation celebration periods.

Each of the SmartDrive DWI: Driving with Intelligence programs is coupled with a student body pledge participation program. High School Administrators are asked to recommend a student leadership organization in their school to conduct one week pledge drives asking the entire student body to pledge to be safe in and around motor vehicles.

SmartDrive Click4Life – seat belt use by Teens (16-20 year olds) is the lowest among all age groups.  This Fall Semester program aims to encourage all Teens – both drivers and passengers – to use their seatbelts and Buckle Up. Every Trip. Every Time.

SmartDrive PROMISE – going into Prom and Graduation celebrations each Spring, many students lose sight of the dangers that distraction, drowsiness, drinking and drug use present to Teen Drivers and their passengers. This program gives all students information to recognize and avoid hazardous situations.

Student organizations that meet participation goals for the online pledge programs are eligible to receive cash rewards for the efforts.
