Job Announcement: Safe Routes to Schools National Partnership Looking for SoCal Manager

10:40 AM PDT on October 21, 2009


This morning a job announcement appeared in my Inbox from the non-profit that works on Safe Routes to Schools Issues across the country.  Given the somewhat deplorable state of our city's efforts to apply for Safe Routes grants, this position could be a game changer for those working to make travel to Los Angeles' schools safer, cleaner, and more sustainable.  A copy of the announcement is below, and a link to the full application can be found at the end of the article:

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership is hiring a full-time  California policy manager who will be based in the Los Angeles area.  The  policy manager will influence transportation funding allocations and policies at the state-level and in the six-county region governed by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to benefit walking and bicycling for children and families, especially lower-income communities most vulnerable to childhood obesity. The California policy manager will work 20 hours/week on statewide issues and 20 hours/week on activities in Southern California, reporting to Deb Hubsmith, director of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, who also serves as Chair of the California State Network. The full job description along with instructions on how to apply can be found here:
