The Junior Ambassadors are the only peer-to-peer bicycle and pedestrian safety education program in North America
Working with full-time staff members, the Junior Ambassadors present at Chicago Park District day camps and community events, and they perform safety education on the Lakefront Trail. In just six weeks, Junior Ambassadors are trained to communicate bike safety messages and becoming lifelong advocates for cycling.
During the summer months, SAFE Ambassadors and Junior Ambassadors typically visit 150 day camps. They partner with the Chicago Park District to reach 6- to 12-year-olds throughout the city, teaching bicycle skills and safety tips. Ambassador presentations are active and instructive, including helmet fittings and bike rodeos.
