How can I support walking, biking, and rolling at my school?

Have no fear, Safe Routes to School is here! We will help you and your students get moving, in a way that works for you and your school. No job is too small, no timeframe too short -- just get out there and try it!

Types of SRTS volunteer opportunities

Volunteering can be a small or big commitment, depending on your availability and interest. We've made up a quick table below to give you an idea of what volunteering with Safe Routes to School can mean, whether once a year or once a week. 

Table of volunteer roles

Of course, everything in the table is just a suggestion. Volunteering is an opportunity to craft something that both you and your student enjoy.
