The Street Trust’s Jump Start program allows school districts and communities to create a unique local bicycle and pedestrian education program. For the 2018-2019 school year, the Jump Start equipment, complete with training will be in Baker City with Community Connections of Northeast Oregon.  At year’s end, all partners evaluate the program and, if it is successful, find funding to purchase a fleet of bikes and a trailer for the community to continue the program in subsequent years. The Jump Start program includes an 8 hour training for teachers and community members on The Street Trust’s Safe Routes for Kids Curriculum as well as materials for the community to keep and use for one school year, including 36 bikes of all sizes, 100 helmets, tools, and a 20-foot trailer.
