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:

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

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). We currently need volunteers for Woonerven on November 28, 2018; contact Brian Haagsman, Outreach Coordinator, if you can help.

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.
