We’re hiring: Youth and Family Program Coordinator

Who we are

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition works to promote bicycling for everyday transportation in order to transform our streets and neighborhoods into more safe, just, and livable places. Our member-based grassroots organization is considered one of the largest, most active, and effective groups of our kind in the country.

The position

The Youth And Family Program Coordinator will play a vital role in the SF Bicycle Coalition’s efforts to encourage the city’s families and K-12 youth to adopt bicycling and other sustainable modes as one of their transportation options, both by providing fun and informative activities and administratively supporting citywide sustainable transportation programming. Contributing to the work of two contracts – San Francisco-Safe Routes to School (SF-SRTS) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Spare the Air Youth (MTC-STAY) Family Biking program – the Youth and Family Program Coordinator will split their time between contract and project administration responsibilities and youth and family biking program implementation, such as organizing workshops, bike fairs, rides, and other events to educate and encourage youth and families to bike. The successful candidate will be organized and have a keen attention to detail, as well as experience and expertise in leading youth (K-12) programming, especially related to bicycle education. 

Commitment to Equity and Justice

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition acknowledges the harm biking culture and unequal access to transportation have inflicted upon underserved communities — especially people of color, people with disabilities, people from working-class backgrounds, women, and people with LGBTQ+ identities.
