Opportunity to Recruit Local Team members Interested in recruiting local team members from those who park their bikes at events like football games at Stanford? The idea is, while people wait in line to park their bikes, we have some team members strike up a conversation, talk to people about the bike movement, and plant the seeds for them to get involved with a local team.

Contact sandhya@bikesiliconvalley.org for any questions. 10. SVBC is hiring We're looking for folks who have experience running bike programs, things like organizing social rides with nonprofit partners, an understanding of how to leverage partnerships in order to bring new riders into the fold, overseeing things like Bike to Wherever Days, educating kids and adults on how to ride bikes, and in particular, we're looking for folks who can deliver classes in Spanish. Overall, we want go-getter folks who are smart and understand how to effect true behavior change through programs. And, there's also the contract management and coordination side of things.

Ideally, we'd like to find folks who want to be with the organization for the long haul so that we can invest in that person and bring better programs to Silicon Valley that truly change behavior and get more folks riding. If you know of anyone, can you please pass the job description along? The link is here. Thanks! Sonia Elkes & Heather Wolnick Reply with Unsubscribe to stop receiving these email updates.
