Active Transportation Ambassadors Program
Calling all future Active Transportation Ambassadors!
Do you like to engage with the public? Are you moved by transportation? (Yes, pun intended…) Then consider becoming an Active Transportation Ambassador.
Ambassadors are volunteers who represent the Bureau of Transportation and share information and resources about how to get around Portland. Ambassadors help residents discover all the ways Portland offers for getting around, to help them save money and increase physical activity and to help the city reduce congestion and preserve air quality. Pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers and transit riders alike all share our roadways every day. Ambassadors advocate for all road users to share the road safely and courteously.
Apply to become a Transportation Ambassador! Completed applications are due Friday, April 27th.
There are numerous kinds of volunteer opportunities for Ambassadors, from tabling at public events like farmers markets and neighborhood street fairs to assisting with guided walks and bike rides. They also help out at active transportation classes and workshops, during Sunday Parkways, and for bike and pedestrian counts. Ambassadors are expected to commit to volunteering at a minimum of 2 events during the 2015 season.
If becoming an Ambassador sounds like just your thing, fill out this application by Monday, April 27th.
Selected applicants will be invited to a two hour training on Thursday, May 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
