Safe Routes Program
(NCJ 252020) October 2017
Fact Sheet, 6 page(s)
This fact sheet provides information about the Safe Routes Program. The goal of the program is for youth to identify a place that they could go to when they feel unsafe in their own home. Ideally, this place should be within walking distance to remove themselves from a toxic situation or environment. After the safe place is identified, children map out their safe route, which includes their path and how to get to that location. There are a few ways to map out these routes, depending on the age group.
