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.

Unable to attend a live Basics Webinar session? Access a recording of the training here.


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.
