Written for the Maine Safe Routes to School Newsletter.  Cushman Transportation Consulting, LLC is a partner affiliate of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.

On Thursday, May 15th, from 2-3 p.m., the Safe Routes to School National Partnership is hosting a free webinar on Recruiting and Training Volunteers for Long Term Success – Thursday, May 15, 2-3pm.

Our very own Sarah Cushman, Southern Maine Planner for Maine Safe Routes to School, will be one of the presenters – talking specifically about successes and lessons learned through the Portland Walking School Bus Program! This webinar is one of a two-part series that will explore tried-and-true methods for working with volunteers in Safe Routes to School programs and other school-based volunteer initiatives.

Join in to hear Sarah and the other speakers discuss the ways they have recruited and trained volunteers and created sustainable, long-lasting relationships within their schools and communities.
