Pedestrian Safety Workshops

Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools offers interactive and hands-on pedestrian safety training to public schools in Alameda County–absolutely free-of-charge! We offer both pedestrian rodeos (outdoors) and workshops (indoors).

In this assembly-style presentation, students will learn safe, lawful pedestrian behavior using our simulated city street course. During each session, our instructors review traffic signs and signals, pedestrian safety practices and potential dangers while on the road. A handful of students are picked at random to demonstrate safe pedestrian behaviors.

Sessions are 30 minutes and can accommodate one to two classrooms per session, depending on the size of the space provided. Multiple sessions can be held throughout the day. This format allows the entire student body to participate in the workshop on the same day!

The eligibility requirements for schools are:

  • A minimum of 30 students (we work in groups of 30-35 students for 35 minutes per/group)
  • School staff supervision
  • Available multi-purpose room, auditorium or cafeteria area of at least 100 by 50 feet

This activity is best suited for elementary schools. There is limited availability for middle schools.
