Target audience: PE/Health educators; police officers; adult leaders of youth organizations; bike advocates; city planners; city leaders.
Walk!Bike!Fun! (WBF!) is Minnesota's gold standard pedestrian and bike safety curriculum designed by the MN Department of Transportation (MN DOT) to train educators and adult leaders of youth organizations on pedestrian and bike safety topics. It is modular, making it easily adaptable for younger and older age groups across the K-8th grade range.
This curriculum was specifically commissioned by the MN Bike Alliance (BikeMN) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of MN along with the MN DOT to meet state and national PE/Health standards.
The training is free to attend; and educators are eligible for pay for their time.
