Crossing Guard Train-the-Trainer Offered in Pennsylvania

Properly trained crossing guards help to enhance student safety by providing an element of structure and authority to the roadways near schools. Crossing guards can positively influence the behavior of children near intersections and help children cross roadways more safely. At this hands-on training, participants
learn proper crossing guard techniques and practices so that they can return to their communities and set up similar training geared for local crossing guards.

This training, which targets those who train crossing guards, represents the first time that standardized crossing guard instruction has been developed and taught across Pennsylvania. There is no charge to attend this training.
