Safe Routes to School Workshop

At a SRTS Workshop, local, county and regional staff, along with advocates, learn how to plan and support SRTS efforts to create a state where all students can walk and bicycle on routes that are safe, comfortable, and convenient.  Participants will designate which training module will be most applicable to their community’s SRTS goals. The workshops will use the host community as the class room to support learning from and with practitioners from across the region.

Target audiences include engineers, law enforcement, planners, public health practitioners, school administrators, elected officials, students, parents and advocates.

All communities are eligible whether they are just starting SRTS efforts or have well established programs.
