Chevrolet, along with partner Safe Kids Worldwide, is teaming up with the Cub Scouts to help 6 to 10 year-olds learn about vehicle safety. The program kicks off in Charlotte at Hendrick Motorsports. More than 200 Charlotte-area Cub Scouts and their family members will take part in the special pilot program.

The program is designed to teach kids about vehicle safety, but Chevy and Safe Kids will also learn from the experience. As each child begins the program, a short questionnaire will measure what kids already know. At the end of the program, their knowledge will be measured again to see how much information was learned. Cub Scouts who complete the program will receive a wallet safety card and an Automotive Safety patch.

The program looks at several aspects of safety, including proper safety belt/booster seat usage, how to contact OnStar in the event of an emergency, preventing trunk entrapment, and teaching families to never leave a child alone in a vehicle.

Chevrolet and Safe Kids will announce new locations for the program soon.

Chevrolet is one of America's most well-known and successful automotive brands. While Safe Kids Worldwide is a global network of organizations whose mission is to prevent accidental childhood injury, a leading killer of children 14 and under. More than 450 coalitions in 16 countries bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families. The Safe Kids Buckle Up program was created in 1996 with support from General Motors. In 2005 Chevrolet became the lead brand in the partnership.
