In fall 2014, DC Streetcar distributed the Educators Toolkit to 10 area schools along the H/Benning Line. To further engage grade school youth on safety, we presented DC Streetcar Safety Assemblies to elementary and middle schools.

Safety Outreach to Schools

The Safety Assemblies teach students the importance of making safe decisions when near the streetcars. Designed to be fun, educational, and interactive, topics presented include:

  • What is a streetcar?
  • Where does DC Streetcar operate?
  • Streetcar Smarts Safety Tips!

We presented at the following schools:

  • Friendship PCS — Blow Pierce Jr. Academy
  • J.O. Wilson Elementary School
  • Miner Elementary School
  • Browne Education Campus
  • Capitol Hill Montessori
  • Eliot-Hine Middle School
  • Stuart-Hobson Middle School
  • Phelps Architecture, Construction, and Engineering High School (Career Day)
  • Gallaudet University (Information Booth)
