RISE for Autism needs 100 volunteers during this 5 day Camp for individuals with Special Needs. With the guidance and aid of 100 volunteers, 35 individuals will learn how to independently ride a 2 wheel bicycle.
The time commitment is only 75-minute increments, but don't be afraid to sign up for more than one time slot.
We appreciate any and all volunteers, but we REALLY appreciate volunteers signing up for the same time slots across the week. This helps the riders feel secure when they have the same spotters supporting them as they learn to ride a bike.
By Thursday, some of our riders will be riding with speed. This is a very active volunteer opportunity, please keep that in mind. As a spotter, you will be jogging alongside the riders. Spotters often take turns jogging a few laps, so the more volunteers, the better!
You will receive a t-shirt and service hours are available.
