The Providence Children’s Initiative Walking School Bus supports a wide range of student-centered goals, including daily school attendance, on-time arrival, daily exercise, positive adult role models, and parent engagement. We are seeking volunteers to walk kids to school – a great way to connect with kids and get your daily exercise. You can volunteer once a month, once a week, or every day.

Susan Culpo, a Walking School Bus volunteer who leads one of the routes says, "It is the most gratifying, fun, important part of my day. It takes minutes and it's very helpful making sure these fabulous children arrive to school safe, happy and on time...You will love it."
