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.

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 feature small group, hands-on sessions designed to help you build or sustain a SRTS project. Trainings include how to navigate the planning and application process, share best practices, and feature success stories from some of Michigan’s most innovative projects.
Breakout session topic options include:
- Students at the Center: SRTS Youth Engagement and Leadership
- Building Sustainable District-Wide SRTS Programs with Policy and Partnerships
- Asset Mapping: From Resources to Volunteers
- Safe Routes to School for Rural Communities
Registration is required at least one week before each event, as space is limited.
Training is scheduled from 9:30AM to 3:00PM and include a FREE lunch. We also will offer an optional walking audit from 3:00PM to 4:00PM immediately following the training (weather permitting).
