We are currently looking to hire a full-time coordinator for our Safe Routes Philly Program. The description is below; you can see the full job description here. Applications are now being accepted for the position, which starts July 1.

PURPOSE AND GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Safe Routes Philly (SRP) introduces cycling and walking as fun, healthy and environmentally friendly activities for all children to enjoy. Since its inception in 2010, SRP has trained over 200 teachers and our pedestrian and bicycle safety lessons have been taught in 132 public and charter schools, reaching 60,000 students. SRP has assisted 18 schools with walkability audits, facilitated the installation of 253 bike racks at 45 public schools, and continues to work with schools to implement encouragement activities, such as bike rodeos, walk to school days, and bike to school days.

SRP was recently awarded the 21st Century grant from NBC10 to expand Walking School Bus programs in Philadelphia. The Safe Routes Philly Coordinator will be responsible for continuing this successful program by fulfilling our goals for two City of Philadelphia funding contracts, as well as expanding Walking School Buses.
