Volunteer for Sunday Streets!

Here are a few ways you can lend a hand:

Event Prep: Neighborhood Outreach volunteers canvas the route inviting neighboring residents and businesses to participate in Sunday Streets. Most outreach is weekdays during daytime hours, exact time can be flexible. Sign up for a shift below, or email liza@livablecity.org with your availability if you’d like to help out.

Event Prep: Sign Prep volunteers help us keep the event car-free by preparing “No Parking” signs to post on the route before each Sunday Streets event. These shifts are great for individuals or small groups who enjoy “zen tasks” and helping out while chatting and listening to music. Come for the whole three hours, or just drop in for 30 minutes. Whatever time you have will help us out.

Event Prep: Sign Posting volunteers help us keep the event car-free by posting “No Parking” signs before each Sunday Streets event. These shifts are great for people who enjoy being outside and want to support Sunday Streets but keep their Sundays free for enjoying the event.

Event – Intersection Monitors keep Sunday Streets participants safe by stopping participants at intersections with cross traffic and helping Traffic Officers keep the route car-free.

Event – Route Rabbit volunteers keep Sunday Streets participant safe by maintaining the car-free buffer zone around Sunday Streets, escorting authorized vehicles on the route, and providing support to Intersection Monitor volunteers.
All Route Rabbit volunteers must have a bicycle and have volunteered at Sunday Streets at least once before.

Event – Volunteer and Information Booth: Be a Sunday Streets ambassador at the Volunteer and Information Booth! Booth volunteers help with lost and found, answer questions for volunteers and participants, and encourage people to support Sunday Streets.

Event – Mystery Shift volunteers are our go-to people. From filling in as intersection monitors until all volunteers arrive, to removing “No Parking” signs from the route once the event has started, to supporting volunteers at the info booth, the Mystery Shift does it all.
