CicLAvia is a 501(c)3 non-profit that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through open street events. At each event, we remove cars from miles of streets in LA County and open them up for people to walk, skate, bike, play, and explore. As part of our effort to inform the community of our event(s) and reduce any negative impact of the street closures on the residents and businesses along our routes, we conduct thorough and extensive door-to-door outreach for each event.
CicLAvia is looking to grow our Outreach Team and we are seeking additional Outreach Team Members.
The Community Outreach Team Member is a part-time, non-exempt position that involves intensive notification efforts and canvassing of neighborhoods along our upcoming CicLAvia event routes. The Outreach Team Member will be responsible for door-to-door notification along upcoming routes, alerting residents and businesses of the upcoming event, taking note of buildings with blocked driveways, and collecting contact information and other data for every stakeholder on the route. The Outreach Team Member may also act as an ambassador for CicLAvia at various community events.
