Bike Volunteers Wanted!
The Arc of Loudoun
in partnership with Loudoun County Adaptive Recreation
At Harper Park Middle School
August 1-5, 2022
We are pleased to offer this bike program to people with disabilities and look forward to having you play an important part in helping our special riders learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle independently
Spotter: Walk/jog/run alongside a rider as they are learning to ride a bike during a 75-minute session (with short breaks) for 5 days Monday through Friday. You will provide encouragement and physical support, as needed.
***NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IS NECESSARY***
AGE REQUIREMENT: Volunteers must be at least 15 years old
Please plan to attend our 45-minute orientation on Sunday, July 31, 2022 (time TBD) at Harper Park Middle School, 701 Potomac Station Drive, Leesburg, Virginia 20176.
Session(s) Volunteering For:
NOTE: Volunteer spotters will walk/jog approximately 3 miles during each 75-minute session so please keep this in mind if considering volunteering for multiple sessions. Unless you are very athletic, you may want to consider not volunteering for more than two (2) sessions per day.
We encourage volunteers to commit to attending all 5 days of camp for the session(s) selected. Riders bond with their assigned volunteer(s) and rely on the same person to be there to support them each day of camp. We do understand this is not always a possibility and will welcome volunteers any days they can attend.
