Volunteer

Have Fun and Make Our Streets Safer

A great way power our work for safe streets and a more walkable San Francisco is as a volunteer.

Whether you have a few hours to give or you want to take on a longer-term project, our small but mighty staff needs your help.

Current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Walk to Work Day
  • Being a Walk SF Ambassador
  • Supporting our annual events
  • Helping with administrative tasks in our office
  • Advocacy outreach to support our campaigns

Help Make Walk to Work Day 2019 a Success

Walk to Work Day is coming up on April 10, 2019, and we need your help to make it a blast for over 10,000 people who celebrate the healthiest, greenest, and cheapest way to get around San Francisco.

Hub Ambassadors

Ambassadors hand out goodies to participants and recruit new Walk SF members on the morning of Walk to Work Day. All Ambassadors get a free ‘I Walk SF’ shirt, and must attend one training before Walk to Work Day at Walk SF’s office.

Upcoming Ambassador Trainings:

Monday, April 1, 2019 6:15 – 7:30 pm

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 12:00 -1:00 pm 

Thursday, April 4, 2019 6:15 – 7:30 pm

Photographers

Can you capture all the action on the morning of Walk to Work Day on April 10?  Contact Marta Lindsey to let us know you’re interested.

Poster Your Neighborhood

We would love to see Walk to Work Day posters (in English, Spanish, and Chinese) hanging in shop windows across the city. Can you help? We’d love to give you a stack of posters to take around to businesses in your neighborhood. Contact Brian Haagsman to set up a time to pick up posters.

Walk SF Ambassadors

Ambassadors represent Walk SF at events like Sunday Streets and Walk to Work Day, and help us grow the movement for safe, healthy, and equitable streets. If you’re a passionate pedestrian safety advocate, you will love being a Walk SF Ambassador!

Ambassadors receive a free ‘I Walk SF’ shirt at their first shift, and must attend a short training before serving as an Ambassador. RSVP to join us at our next Ambassadors Training.

Supporting Our Annual Events

We always need help with our major annual events: Walk to Work Day (April), Peak2Peak (September), Walk & Roll to School Day (October), World Day of Remembrance for Traffic Victims (November), and Woonerven (November).

Administrative Support

We need your help with data entry, mailings, and other administrative tasks in the office. Whether you can come in during the day or at one of our evening Volunteer Nights, contact Brian Haagsman, Outreach Coordinator.

Advocacy

Our campaigns depend on people like you talking to community members, giving public comment, attending planning meetings, and more. Explore our campaigns and find one that you’re especially passionate – and then reach out to the staff member working on that campaign to get involved.
