SRTS is a national and international movement to create safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bicycle and walk to and from schools. The program has been designed to reverse the decline in children walking and bicycling to schools.

What is a Bike/Ped Plan?
A Bike/Ped Plan is a document that offers technical guidance on meeting the requirements for

transportation plans and Transportation Improvement Plans. This plan identifies strategies and specific
recommendations to increase the number of people walking and bicycling in an area (city, village,
county, etc.) by improving the safety, connectivity, convenience, and attractiveness of the pedestrian
and bicycle networks.

Hiring students for summer jobs

Impact issues that matter this summer with the Fund!

 

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will have offices in over 40 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns. Our office in Wisconsin is located in downtown Madison and will be running campaigns to protect Wisconsin’s lakes from factory farm runoff as well as to fight the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

 

Last summer our staff helped stop toxic gas drilling, worked to end subsidies for junk food, and built support for equal rights for all Americans – all while building valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations, including here in Madison. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.

 

As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations, businesses, and community leaders. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.
