Around the state, students walk and roll to the places they need to go daily. Giving them the skills to do so appropriately is an important part of every Safe Routes program. While many educators would like to provide bicycle and pedestrian safety education in their schools, they do not always have the proper training or curriculum to do so.
Oregon Safe Routes to School’s Technical Assistance Provider team (TAP) is happy to launch the newly revamped Train the Trainer Program! In this program, TAP team members will provide hands-on training to educators about bicycle and pedestrian safety topics. Learn how to teach your students about properly using crosswalks, correctly use bicycle hand signals, how to fit helmets to students and much more.
With this new effort, Oregon SRTS is also purchasing five new bicycle fleets for schools and school districts to borrow to deliver their bicycle safety education courses. Bicycles come in sizes suitable for elementary school students, and helmets are also available. Pedestrian education kits are available as well.
Interested in learning more about the program? Attend our Statewide Webinar on June 14th from 11am-noon. Clint Culpepper (Cycle Oregon) and Lindsay Huber (The Street Trust) will be presenting in detail about the Train the Trainer program.
