April Volunteer Night is Tomorrow (4/7): Outreach Volunteer Training and Letter Stuffing

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a Bicycle Ambassador, without the full-time commitment? Well now you can, by becoming one of the Bike Coalition's dedicated "Outreach Volunteers".

If you are interested in helping to educate and encourage Philadelphians about our mission to promote bicycling in the region, while also honing your own outreach skills, please join us for volunteer night on April 7th at 6:30pm (6:15 for refreshments)!

Education Director Breen Goodwin, along with former Bicycle Ambassadors, will train you the basics of being an Outreach Volunteer. We will teach you how to engage people in conversation, talk about the Bicycle Coalition's mission and work, and encourage people to become members.

We ask that our Outreach Volunteers sign up to assist with at least 3 events over the course of the year.

Volunteers will also be needed for stuffing envelopes for an upcoming membership appeal, so even if you're not an aspiring Bicycle Ambassador, please join us on April 7th!

6:15pm- Arrive for food and drink
6:30pm- Introductions
6:45pm- Outreach training and envelope stuffing
8:15pm- Wrap-up
Pizza and drinks provided. Please RSVP by emailing events@bicyclecoalition.org.

This could be you!!!
