Volunteers fixing a trail

The Montgomery Parks Trail Ambassador Program is a volunteer service AND mountain biking recreational program for high school students. Each of the sessions are two weeks long, Monday thru Friday. Students will work together completing hands-on trail improvement projects in the morning, and after lunch the team will develop biking skills through group bike rides.

Learn trail etiquette, bike safety, and mechanics. Discover the fun, health benefits, and social interactions of group mountain biking rides!

There are two sessions to choose from:

June 17 thru June 28, in Wheaton

July 8 thru July 19, in Germantown

Students must commit to attending this program for the full two weeks!

Go to our listing on the Parks Volunteer website to apply: www.ParksVolunteers.org

Once at the listing (search under Sports and Recreation or Trails), review the Duties and Requirements, and then click on the Schedule Tab to choose either the first session or second session. After you apply, someone will be in touch to discuss the program further to make sure it is a good fit, and that you can meet the requirements before you are placed.

Student Service Learning (SSL) hours approved for hours spent volunteering (4 per day)!

Participants who complete the program will receive a new Mountain Bike and Helmet!
