Clean Energy Durham is recruiting 10 South Durham volunteers to organize bike events in their neighborhoods. Free training is provided! Interested? Apply before 12/30/11.

Clean Energy Durham needs 10 volunteers from South Durham neighborhoods to act as Bicycle Transportation Trainers. These volunteers will receive free training and will help teach bicycle maintenance and commuting techniques to their neighbors.

The trainees will be provided with 14 hours of training in seven sessions during the first and third Tuesdays of the month (beginning Jan 17th). The  mandatory training sessions are hands-on and taught by skilled professionals. Each trainee will be provided with the necessary supplies and a bike maintenance & safety pamphlet during the course. Trainees must be able to attend all sessions.

In return for this training, trainees will be expected to organize bike-related activities in their neighborhood by June 30th. Examples include:
• Hosting a bicycle clinic
• Starting a group bike ride
• Leading a bike safety workshop
• Being a bike mentor for a beginner commuter

Classes will be located at the Durham Bike Co-op at 715 Washington Street.  Trainees will be asked to provide an additional 10 volunteer hours at the Bike Co-op to allow them to hone and share their skills.

To apply, please complete the Bicycle Transportation Trainer application. The deadline is 12/30/11, so spread the word today!
