We <3 GM
We are so excited to partner with General Motors to get young people to rally around keeping their friends and families safe on the road.
But when they’re not working with us, most of GM’s time is spent creating groundbreaking solutions that are making people’s lives easier. In their vehicles, that means technologies that don’t require a driver or gasoline to get you from point A to point B. In their communities, GM has doubled down on efforts to expand access to STEM education, promote vehicle and road safety, strengthen economies through workforce development and neighborhood revitalization. GM believes in a safer, smarter future.
