SRTS Youth Engagement Pilot Program!

image003Inspiring youth to act on Safe Routes to School initiatives is a great way to quickly build support for more walking and bicycling. The Safe Routes to School National Partnership, in conjunction with the California Technical Assistance Resource Center, has developed a pilot curriculum that uses team building and leadership development to advance youth-led Safe Routes to School projects in the after school environment. This spring, the National Partnership is looking for 2-3 California-based programs that are interested in using their facilitator to pilot and provide feedback on the curriculum. Selected programs will receive a $1,000 stipend. If you are interested in learning more you can fill out an application here, or contact for more details.

The California Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Technical Assistance Resource Center (TARC) is a program within California Active Communities, a joint Unit of the University of California, San Francisco and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and is funded through a SRTS Non-Infrastructure award from the California Department of Transportation.
