      "It's been our dream ... It's our mission ...
I get a little emotional about this
                               - Dom Tiberi, Founder

     After years of fundraising we have finally opened our FIRST IN THE NATION SIMULATOR SCHOOL.  In coordination with Tolles Career and Technical Center and a multitude of donors, big and small, we have permanently installed 25 simulators in a dedicated Lab at Tolles.

     Tolles supports 11 School Districts, including 7 High Schools and EVERY ONE of the Tolles students will participate in the 16 module Distracted Driving Simulation course. Nights and weekends we will open the school to individuals.  During the school day, the Lab will be open for schools to arrange field trips for their students to take the 4.5 hour course.

In April, 2022 we opened the SECOND 25 unit SIMULATOR LAB at Eastland-Fairfield Career and Technical Schools which supports16 school districts in Franklin, Fairfield, and Pickaway Counties.

In February, 2023 we will open the THIRD 25 unit SIMULATOR LAB at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center which is a public magnet alternative school within the Columbus City Schools.

We truly appreciate the support of our donors in assisting us with educating the Central Ohio youth in proper management of their potential distractions while driving.  The impact and ripple effect of this education will be a great accomplishment for Ohio.

We will continue to utilize all donations to further the availability of these simulator schools throughout Ohio.
