Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Brookings

Total Budget: $3,500

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Install twp Born Learning Trails in Brookings County, SD to provide free, accessible, educational play for children and caregivers


Born Learning Trails turn everyday moments into learning opportunities. From Birth, children are constantly learning, and what they learn during those formative years depends on experiences they have each and everyday. Families and children in a community, however, don't have equal access to developmental play opportunities. Born Learning is a research-based, public engagement campaign that helps parents, grandparents and caregivers explore ways to turn everyday moments into fun learning opportunities.

Born Learning Trails are a series of 10 reinforced signs (available in English and Spanish) that offer fun, active learning activities for young children and their families. These colorful, full-metal signs can be installed in a few hours with the help of volunteers. The signs are thick metal with round corners and include a protective UV laminate coating and anti-graffiti protections. The Born Learning Trail Kits are made of the same material as street signs and will hold up to most weather conditions.

The Brookings Rotary Club seeks a grant to partner with the Brookings Area United Way (BAUW) to install two Born Learning Trails in Brookings County public parks in the Fall of 2019. Each of the signs will include the Rotary and BAUW logos, and Rotary will also be recognized in print and social media outlets, as well as in a planned ribbon-cutting and opening for the first Born Learning Trail in Brookings County. (Currently, South Dakota only has five trails--near Yankton, Aberdeen and Huron.)

Installing two Rotary Born Learning Trails in Brookings County will increase access to basic education and literacy for some of the most vulnerable children in our community. Rotary members will volunteer to install the signs, and their partnership with the Brookings Area United Way will be prominently recognized in media, as well as on each trail sign.
