Interested in having a Born Learning Trail in your community?

Signs are available in English and Spanish and translations can also be made to most other languages. The trail can be ordered as a kit and includes instructions, hardware, and reinforced full-color metal signs.  Building materials and muscle can be locally sourced – installation days make for great volunteer events. Signs include the option to have special messaging, including sponsor names, company logos, or other investor recognition.

Ideas for leading a Trail effort in your community:

  • Contact the United Way to express an interest.  
  • Volunteer to fundraise, organize volunteers, or otherwise assist the effort.
  • Promote the idea to other community groups – churches, early childhood education agencies, PTA groups.  
  • Seek sponsors or investors to underwrite the project.
  • Use neighborhood events to generate enthusiasm for a trail.
  • Inquire with employers or local municipalities for community improvement grants.
