Call for volunteers

Position: Program Coordinator
Organization: Bike Edmonton
Location: Edmonton, Alberta

Bike Edmonton is looking for 4 volunteers to help launch a Bike Friendly certification program in Edmonton. Bike Edmonton will be launching the certification program to make Edmonton more bike friendly, and to highlight local bike-friendly organizations and businesses.

We are seeking:

  • 2 program coordinators (estimated 8 hours per month commitment)
  • 2 business auditors (estimated 4 hours per month commitment)

The (2) Program Coordinators will work with the Bike Edmonton board of directors and will have significant freedom to execute the program for success. The Program Coordinator will adapt program materials developed by Bike Edmonton. The Program Coordinator will assign Business Auditors to visit different establishments seeking certification. The Program Coordinator may make use of all Bike Edmonton resources, such as printing, workspace, e-commerce, and promotions resources. The Program Coordinator will also be supported by the Board of Directors.

The (2) Business Auditors will work closely with the program coordinator. They will attend 1-2 business or other establishments per month and conduct an evaluation using a provided checklist. They will then follow up with the evaluated business and provide certification stickers and materials. Business Auditors represent Bike Edmonton to the community and should present a friendly attitude when interacting with businesses.

These are volunteer commitments that require individuals with an ability to commit for at least 6 months of volunteering. The Bike Edmonton Board of Directors is leading this initiative and is here to support the volunteers in any way needed within the capacities we have. While the Board has developed supporting materials, the program is in the planning phase. The volunteers will have the opportunity to launch and run the program. Several businesses have already indicated interest in the program.

For members of our community who believe in our vision but may not be able to volunteer in our community bike shops, this is an excellent opportunity to give back to the organization and make a difference in your community.

Please submit your name and a brief statement of your interest in the volunteer position by July 31, 2019, to Mark Husband, Bike Edmonton Board Member at
