Description

Volunteer to Support Open Streets at CicLAvia — South LA (Western Ave)!

CicLAvia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through car-free streets. CicLAvia engages with people to transform our relationship with our communities and with each other.

Join us on Sunday, June 23rd (rain or shine!), as we transform Western Avenue into a public park for the day. Jog, ride, bike, skate, run, walk, skateboard, spectate, and enjoy the route however you want. Our routes are welcoming to people of all ages and abilities!

Hub Volunteers assist with activities at the hubs. These activities include:

  • Providing information to CicLAvia participants
  • Asking participants to dismount, slow down, or follow other traffic instructions related to hubs
  • Assisting Hub Staff with hub setup, breakdown, and maintenance
  • Enrolling participants in our newsletter and conducting LA Metro's Open Streets survey

We also group volunteer opportunities! Our Adopt-An-Intersection Program is a great way for non-profits, community groups, school clubs, and teams (of 4 or more people) to volunteer together on the CicLAvia route.

Volunteer groups will be assigned a specific intersection, and guide participant traffic at car crossings, pedestrian crossings, and dismount zones. While volunteering, groups can promote their group to the thousands of CicLAvia participants.
