Safe Passage in Newark at Newark Collegiate Academy

Join Newark Community Street Team and like-minded volunteers to build a safe passage for children as they travel between home and school. Volunteers will create a positive experience through brief interactions with children, parents and local residents. All it takes is a willingness to engage in friendly conversation, an ability to greet students and families with a welcomed “hello” and a passion for Newark as a thriving community.
Volunteer Tasks Include

  • Walking
  • Smiling
  • Offering a greeting
  • Being kind and friendly

Safe Passage is designed to provide safe routes for students while traveling to and from school. Each identified school will have a uniquely tailored strategy, which will take into consideration that school's community, popular modes of student transportation, arrival and dismissal times, and student residences.
