One of our longest running programs, Safe Routes to School, focuses on increasing the number and safety of Milwaukee youth who ride bikes or walk for transportation. Since 2005 we have directly educated over 20,000 kids through our partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools and other various contracts using our Bike Driver’s Ed and walking Wisdom Curriculum. Both of which are free for download on our site.
Relatively new to the programs we offer is a focus on Youth Engagement and involving youth in the making positive changes in their lives and the environment around them . Technology can be a big part of that, as they often teach our staff something new in these regards.
Tomorrow, August 30th. Safe Routes to School Staff are partnering with Escuela Verde students to take over the Bike Fed’s Instagram account.
You can follow along all day with pictures from their bike ride and see how our work is done through the eyes of the students.
So all you need to do is Follow @Bikefed on Intsagram. #saferoutestoschool #instagramtakeover
