We are dedicated to helping Michigan schools and communities build sustainable Safe Routes to School programs, and offer a series of trainings annually to further the development of your projects. Additionally, we can adapt any training in terms of time or topic for your team.

 2020 Basics Trainings

The SRTS Basics Training is a 45-60 minute introductory webinar that will help you understand how Safe Routes to School works in Michigan. The session ends with Q&A, so you will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from others on the call.

The SRTS Basics training is offered monthly and there is no cost to participate, but registration is required. Check out the upcoming dates to register.

Regional Trainings

The SRTS regional trainings are for school champions, award recipients, principals, school transportation officials, planners, and road authorities, who want to dive deeper into the SRTS movement.

Our regional training opportunities are designed to help you build or sustain a SRTS project. Trainings share best practices, and feature success stories from some of Michigan’s most innovative projects.

The virtual webinars in May include the following topics:

Register for the webinar topics of interest even if you’re unable to attend the live webinar so you will be sent the recorded webinar sessions.

August SRTS Regional Training Opportunities

The trainings are scheduled from 9:30AM to 3:00PM, include a FREE lunch, and will have the same session topics as the virtual trainings in May. We also will offer an optional walking audit from 3:00PM to 4:00PM immediately following the training (weather permitting).

Registration is required at least one week before the event, as space is limited.
