Bike Share Ambassadors
We are looking for Bike Share Ambassadors who will work up to six months and up to five hours a week to help build relationships with community members near bike share stations outside of Center City, Philadelphia. The ambassadors will attend community meetings, events, distribute outreach materials and help identify community partners for better programming opportunities. There are three positions available.
We are always looking for talented, passionate people with skills in urban planning, community organizing, graphic design, filming and video editing, and political advocacy. We regularly have need of these skills in a volunteer capacity, if that interests you.
You do not need to be a hardcore bicyclist to work here – you just need to believe in the power of the bicycle as a transportation tool and a vehicle for positive community change. You also must believe that bicycles are for everyone, of all abilities, backgrounds, and needs. If that sounds like you, send your resume and a letter telling us about yourself to bike(at)bicyclecoalition.org.
