Fairfax County Bicycle and Pedestrian Ambassador Program

Looking for a great volunteer opportunity for yourself or a teenager you know?  The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is accepting applications for volunteers who are 16 or older to serve as Bicycle and Pedestrian Ambassadors.

The Ambassador Program is a grassroots education and encouragement initiative that aims to make Fairfax County a safer place for active transportation and recreation. It also seeks to encourage more adults and children to walk and bike.

Ambassadors are expected to volunteer 10 hours annually and the only qualification is that the volunteers must be able to ride a bike. They will receive training to enable them to teach and promote safe cycling and walking practices in a fun and positive way.  The training also will give the Ambassadors the skills needed to assist Fairfax County residents with basic bike maintenance issues in the field or at events. 

Ambassadors can choose from a variety of volunteer opportunities depending on personal interest and experience, to include giving hands-on presentations on a variety of bike and pedestrian related topics; providing in-the-field education and assistance as needed; handing out materials at local events; and modeling good bicycle and pedestrian behavior at all times.

If you or someone you know is interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Nicole Wynands at FCDOT at 703-877-5625 or
