Volunteers needed for Street Survival for Teens class

Street Survival Class for Teens:  Volunteers Needed

By Nate Heiking, Car Control Committee Chair

The Milwaukee Region SCCA is inviting Porsche Club members to participate in the Milwaukee Region SCCA Tire Rack Street Survival class on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Milwaukee Area Technical College - Oak Creek campus. Street Survival is a real world, hands-on driving safety class for teens. Students learn in a combination of classroom, their own vehicle, and demonstrations with real tractor trailers, emergency vehicles and airbags. In-car coaches encourage and guide students through behind-the-wheel exercises such as threshold braking, slalom, emergency lane changes and a wet skid pad.

We are looking for in-car coaches, tech inspection, course marshals, registration, and others to help make the day run smoothly.

To register as a volunteer:  https://msreg.com/mkeTRSS2022. The Instructor Training for Street Survival In-Car Coaches is at https://streetsurvival.org/schools/become-a-coach/

To register a student for the class, please visit http://StreetSurvival.org.  There they can find more information and can register for $95. Registrants should be between 15 – 21 years old, permitted for 3 months or licensed. 

Thank you for helping with this program to teach our young drivers car control. We cannot do it without volunteers, and we’re very fortunate to have access to this great educational event in our area. This is not a PCA-affiliated event, but PCA events also follow the Tire Rack instructional regimen.

For additional information on the event, please contact Charlie Caliendo (charliecaliendo@gmail.com) or Roy Carrera (carreracer@gmail.com), Milwaukee Region SCCA Tire Rack Street Survival Coordinators.
