Current Volunteer Needs:
Work on projects that staff identify as needs and that fit your interests and skill sets. Current staff needs are listed below. And let us know if you have particular talent that you want to share that isn’t listed.
Advocates and Ambassadors: Our organization is entering a critical phase that will help make Houston a safer, more bicycle-friendly city. We need you to make this happen. We are working in two main areas: Houston Bike Plan implementation and on Street Improvements. We need volunteers who are passionate about building a safer Houston and want to get involved in the political process to make this happen. We are actively recruiting diverse Ambassadors to ensure we get community feedback and buy-in for Bike Plan projects. We also ask Ambassadors to help us leverage community support into political and financial support. Find out more about the Ambassador program here.
