Patroller holding two older students back



From 1920 to present day, the AAA School Safety Patrol Program plays an important role in helping young students learn and fulfill leadership roles.

The presence of a AAA School Safety Patrol wearing the familiar belt & badge is a nationally recognized symbol alerting motorists to drive carefully, for school children are in the area.

Now, more than 635,000 children throughout the country participate in the program.

School Safety Patrol Pledge with AAA Pin Badges

Many famous Americans have held the position of AAA School Safety Patrol, including U.S. Presidents, Governors, Supreme Court Justices, Olympic Medalists, Astronauts, Educators, Executives and Community Leaders!

AAA Mid-Atlantic supports the program by providing patrol equipment, support materials, training and individualized school guidance. In addition, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety & Education sponsors Training Camps and recognizes Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrols at Award Luncheons throughout the AAA Mid-Atlantic territory.

The AAA School Safety Patrol Program may have evolved over the years, but the mission remains the same: "to provide a safer environment and leadership opportunities for millions of school children.”

. . . today's volunteers, tomorrow's leaders!
