WOBO Board members in action at Love Our Neighborhood Day, Open Streets event on San Pablo Ave
WOBO seeks a self-motivated, outgoing and skilled Oakland resident to help lead Oakland's premiere advocacy group in making the city a better place to walk and bike. This is a working Board, where each member commits to fundraise / donate a minimum of $1,000 per 12 months, but also actively takes on project(s) under her/his wings. Expected time commitment is approximately 15 to 20 hours per month. Board members must attend monthly Board meetings on 4th Wednesday evening of the month, and be available on a project-by-project basis.
Many professional development and skills-building opportunities are available. Board members also get hands-on experience and mentoring by collaborating and communicating with other community advocates, transportation officials, City Council and municipal and regional department heads in Oakland and across the Bay Area.
We encourage people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and interests to apply. Must be passionate about biking and walking, and a sustainable and equitable Oakland.
