Teen 2 Teen is a youth-based program that was founded in 1996 in partnership with John W. North High School’s Law and Protective Services Academy (LAPS).  The LAPS Academy Seniors are provided public speaking training and equipped with the tools needed to inform their peers about traffic safety issues.  The students involved with the program interact with police department personnel, gain an increased ability to speak in public, learn leadership skills, and explore different areas of traffic safety. In addition, all Teen 2 Teen students make presentations to students at their school and/or other schools throughout the school year.
