Our Mission

to reduce teen fatalities and injuries from motor vehicle crashes by developing safe driving habits through education and positive reinforcement.

Operation Click is focused on saving teens lives by empowering students to embrace safe driving habits – working hand in hand with our community to make it happen.

Since 1998 Operation Click has been instrumental in formulating the driving behavior of teens. Partnering with community leaders, police departments, families and students, our organization is striving to compel teens to truly understand the perils of impaired and distracted driving. Operation Click is having a direct impact on our community, with over 10 years of positive results, and countless saved lives, teens in our community are safer drivers today than they’ve ever been… but there’s still more to do.

While Operation Click, by virtue of our name, is devoted to seatbelt use and safety, our initiative is wide and encompassing. We want our teens to learn today, right now, that not only are seat belts critical to safety, but distracted driving is a recipe for disaster. We work to save lives by using positive reinforcement. With a signed contract, and adherence to the rules – students have a chance to win a brand new car, graciously donated by our community dealerships and sponsors. Learn more about our program.
