Frogtown Neighborhoods Program

St. Paul Smart Trips’ Neighborhoods Program works with community members and local organizations to overcome barriers to healthier, more affordable modes of transportation. The Frogtown Neighborhoods Program is a partnership between St. Paul Smart Trips and the Kitty Andersen Youth Science Center at the Science Museum of Minnesota. The partnership has two ultimate goals: to develop a group of youth leaders in the Frogtown neighborhood and to increase walking and biking trips in the community through youth-led outreach. Drawing upon each organization’s area of expertise, the program focuses on working with 10 to 12 Frogtown youth to provide them with the tools and training to creatively advocate for better transportation options in their neighborhood. The Frogtown Crew will build upon their experiences from last year by showcasing what they’ve learned through summer capstone projects. These projects will be designed to create solutions to transportation barriers in the Frogtown community. In partnership with the Frogtown Neighborhood Association, the crew will host a series of engagement activities. Their goal is to engage more than 10 percent of Frogtown residents through their capstone projects.
