This position is funded by a grant from the District of Columbia Department of Transportation which requires WABA, during the 2006-2008 school years, to expand its Street Smart for Kids Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Education Program in District of Columbia elementary schools and at other venues. The program will utilize an established school curriculum that has been in use and refined by WABA over the past four years in the District of Columbia as well as in the state of Maryland.
This position supports the Safety Education Program Manager by coordinating the Street Smart for Kids program in the District of Columbia and by assisting with additional bike and pedestrian safety programs in the District and in Maryland.

Four-Day Community Workshop Remakes Pennsylvania Avenue, SE as a "Great Street"
Beginning on Wednesday, July 26th, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will begin an intensive four-day community workshop with area residents, merchants and property owners to discuss and review streetscape design options on Pennsylvania Avenue east of the Anacostia River. Part of the Mayor's Great Streets program, DDOT has committed over $14 million for a make-over of the corridor's public spaces including sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, public art, open spaces, and the street itself.
The workshop is designed with multiple sessions in an effort to accommodate residents and business owner's schedules. Stakeholders are encouraged to come when they can, as often as they can beginning the evening of Wednesday, July 26th at 6:30pm through noon on Saturday, July 29th.
For questions or comments about the workshop, please contact Karina Ricks (email@example.com or 202-671-2542).
