Looking for the best volunteer opportunity of 2024? Look no further!

Unlimited Possibilities is hosting iCan Bike Camp August 5-9 in Irvine.

The mission of iCan Bike Camp is to provide unique learning opportunities in recreational activities for people with disabilities. Each person’s abilities are embraced and nurtured to foster an environment where everyone can shine!

VOLUNTEER

iCan Bike Camp is a rewarding experience for all! Each rider attends the same 75-minute session for each of the 5 days (M - F) and is assigned the same two volunteers who will work with the rider throughout the week. It is important for our riders to work with the same volunteers each day building a trusting relationship as they progress through the week.  

Details & Requirements:

  • No prior experience working with people with disabilities is necessary.
  • Must be at least 15 years old.
  • You will be assigned to a rider once you arrive at camp. We will not know the speed of each rider until they start.

Sign Up Today!

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, please do not volunteer for more than two (2) 75-minute sessions per day.

Volunteers are required to attend a 45-minute orientation on Sunday, August 4, 2024 at 2:00pm at The Rinks. During this orientation, you will learn about how the iCan Bike program operates, what to expect each day in your role as a volunteer spotter and you will receive training tips on spotting your assigned rider. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and meet other volunteers in your session.

Volunteers arrive each day of camp 20 minutes prior to their session start time for a daily strategy/briefing session.
