This resource is meant to inspire collaboration between parents and youth workers, school officials, law enforcement, and other community members to keep their children safe. This program guide is for parents and their community partners to work together with the child to map out a “Safe Route” in the community. This Safe Route is a path that the child can follow to get from one point in the community safely to another. In the worst-case scenario of a missing child, parents and the community can use the Safe Route to launch the recovery effort.
