A Place It! Guide to Safe Routes to Schools

This guide will equip you with the tools to engage students, families, and staff of all backgrounds in imagining, designing, and building more walkable and roll-able routes to school.

This guide covers everything from why it’s important to engage people with their hands (as opposed to simply talking about Safe Routes to School), to materials needed, to outcomes and where they can lead. It also looks at how you can adapt the Place It! workshop method to different audiences and environments (e.g., in person or virtual). Ultimately, this guide can serve equally as a starting point for planning a series of engagement activities to a resource to consult when planning a workshop itself.
