Bicycle Safety Education Training Opportunities this Summer

Want to work on "kid power"? Need help on developing a program at your child's school?

The BTA and Safe Routes to School are offering some training this summer!

1) Youth Bicycle Safety Curriculum Training (RSVP here)
June 25, 9am-5pm: $100 stipends available on a first come first serve basis. College credit available for $65 to all.
By the end of this hands-on, on-bike training, participants will be prepared to teach a 10-lesson bike education program including on-street riding to 4th-7th graders. Participants will be introduced to the 10-Lesson “Safe Routes for Kids Curriculum”, practice setting up student drills, practice planning student bike rides, learn and demonstrate bike safety expertise, learn and practice navigating legally and safely with traffic, and be introduced to basic bike maintenance skills. Beginner through experienced riders are welcome. $100 stipends available for the first 10 registrants.

2) Neighborhood Navigator Curriculum Training (RSVP here)
June 25, time TBD
Neighborhood Navigators is a k-8 curriculum package which focuses on safe, efficient and healthy transportation choices, the effects of those choices, and community and neighborhood design. This training will prepare educators to implement Neighborhood Navigators curriculum effectively and be able to apply curriculum components to other course requirements with creativity.
This training is for educators who are interested in teaching how transportation choices and the design of the community affect our health and ultimately our community’s health.
