Volunteers have a critical role in the success of our organization. Consider lending a hand. There are a wide variety of
tasks and projects to suit everyone:
- big and small
- one-time and continuous
- technical and artsy
- field observations and computer work
- solo and group projects
- activist stuff and research/office tasks
Contribute a little something, learn a little something, and have fun in the process!
"Volunteering with LivableStreets has been a great experience. It's wonderful to be part of an organization that is really making a difference in the lives of those in the community. I've also learned a great deal about outreach, advocacy, and how non-profits such as LivableStreets function--knowledge that will help me in my future work."
Current Opportunities include:
A BIG THANK YOU to our 25 Street Ambassadors for Summer 2012. Take a look at some of our 2012 Street Ambassador pictures. They even made national press for our Remove McGrath Campaign!
Our 2013 Street Ambassador season has started!
Do you like talking about biking, walking, and public transit? Do you like going to festivals, neighborhood and public events, or being outside? Do you have good people and communication skills? Want to be part of LivableStreets' advocacy campaigns and growing organization? Become a Street Ambassador! Volunteer for a day, or two, or more, this winter and spring. Tremendous growth opportunities.

Advocacy Committee volunteer
Love the technical and political aspect of street design? Do you find yourself at many public meetings throughout the region? Join one of the 40+ people on our Advocacy Committee who help track over 80 street design projects around the region. You will have the opportunity to attend public meetings on behalf of LivableStreets and work directly with government agencies, neighborhood and business groups, and other advocates to create truly complete streets!
The Advocacy Committee meets the last Wednesday of every month at the LivableStreets office. Email Charlie Denison, the Advocacy Committee Chair, at Charlie@livablestreets.info for more information.
Do you love our events and/or events in general? Do you have great people skills and an eye for detail? Help out at one or many of LivableStreets events in 2013. Event volunteers typically work sign in, collect donations, take photos, work the bar and help set up and clean up at many different events around the region.
