Description
On Sunday, September 13, East 6th Street will become a playground for all ages, filled with fun, music, and neighbors at Viva! Streets ATX. We're so excited for Austin's fourth annual open streets event, and we want you to be a part of it.
Volunteer with us on September 13 and you'll get a Viva Streets t-shirt in addition to having lots of fun. Some things we need help with are:
  • Set up on Sunday morning. Do you like getting things put together and making sure all the details are ready to go? We have a spot for you!
  • Activity coordinators during the event. Take charge of one of our activity zones and help other people play in the street! Do you love hula hoops? Ping pong? Kids on balance bikes? Choose your activity and dive right in.
  • Tear down on Sunday evening. Is sticking around after an event to put things away more your thing? We'd love your help!

We also need help getting the word out in the lead up to Viva! Streets day. Can you take promotional cards or posters to your favorite coffee shop? Move one of our promotional bikes to a new location? Or maybe you'd love to come to the office and help us sort through last-minute details. We can find the perfect volunteer job for you!

Questions? Email Marc at marc@biketexas.org

Join us on September 13 for Viva! Streets!
