About

This event is the Bike for Life event. It is at our Frisco location and the volunteer would need to be there form 2-5:30pm. A volunteer for the Oct 2 Bike for Life event is needing to be willing to hold onto a bike, help a child steer a bike, provide encouragement, etc. as the child learns to ride their bike. The participants in the Bike for Life could range from age 3 through 18 as our clientele ranges form that age. These participants are often cognitively challenged or motorically challenged so learning to ride has been hard. They also could appear "typical" but have a disorder such as autism, or have a history of being shy, nervous, or a lack of exposure or desire that has prevented them from learning. Individuals and organizations are welcome to offer to volunteer. We anticipate that for every participant that registers we will need 2-3 volunteers to help them. Excellent communication, patience, and organization is expected in this position. Volunteers who succeed in this position are reliable, punctual, well spoken, good at taking initiative and thinking ahead. This position can be a volunteer position or used for class credit, practicum, or internship. Prior to requesting to be considered for this position please visit our agency’s website at www.unitedthroughhope.org to view what we do and whom we serve. A resume and a volunteer form will be required to be completed for this position as well as in person or phone interview.
