Did you hear the news? High schools are now eligible for federal Safe Routes to School funding! This means new possibilities for connecting Safe Routes to issues teens care about, from climate justice to distracted driving to digital media. Join us as we explore best practices for working with high school students. Learn about building trust, getting program buy-in, and giving teens what they need to lead their own projects. Plus, we will share some inspiring youth-led projects from across the country!
Young people are interested in safe walking, biking, rolling, riding, and driving. Talking with teens about their travel habits reveals two competing priorities: teens’ desires to be independent and their parent's and caregivers’ desires to keep them safe. This guide spotlights youth-led traffic safety projects from across the country and offers strategies for how Safe Routes practitioners can champion youth-led safety projects like Safe Routes to School and advocacy campaigns.
This promotional toolkit can be used to disseminate the report, “Making Strides: 2022 State Report Cards on Support for Walking, Bicycling, and Active Kids and Communities.”
The Modesto Airport Neighborhood is a suburban community in the Central Valley that had not historically received much in the way of Safe Routes to School investment and attention.
This tool is designed to help school board members, administrators, families of students, and community members create and implement district policies that support active transportation and Safe Routes to School programs.
Below are videos to help coordinators, parents and educators teach the skills necessary for everyone to be safe and confident road users.
