It’s as easy as riding a bike, right? Not at first! Little learners need clear instruction and a lot of encouragement to gain skills and confidence on two wheels. Enthusiastic volunteers help keep kids moving and motivated.
We are seeking energetic volunteers for our Encouragement Coach program. No special skills are required; if you are willing to be upbeat and positive, we need your help! Volunteers commit to ten service hours, made up of an orientation and three 3-hour Learn to Ride classes on the dates of your choosing.
Our popular Learn-to-Ride classes are all-outdoor, hands-on, and led by certified instructors who teach kids ages 5-13 the safe, easy, and effective ‘balance first’ method of learning to ride a bicycle. Volunteers may also help check-in families or guide children through the loop course. Volunteers should be comfortable bending down, and working or standing outside in the heat and sun for 3 hours.
In return, you’ll share in the pride and amazement of the one of the biggest accomplishments in a child’s life. It might be one of the best high-fives you’ll ever get!
