When is the last time you told someone, “Go play in the street?” Well, that time has come! Síclovía is a free, bi-annual event, organized by the YMCA of Greater San Antonio. Bikers, walkers, joggers, unicyclists, Pedi-egg drivers all come together to turn our city streets into a safe place for exercise and play. The family-friendly event encourages residents and visitors to get out, get active and explore their city through car-free streets. The Y accomplishes this by activating parks, businesses & community organizations to join in the fun. Síclovía volunteers support this effort by assisting over 60,000 visitors twice a year. The Y needs your help to make Síclovía a success! Our next event is Sunday, March 31 from 11am-3pm. Families, groups and employees are encouraged to volunteer together. Youth as young as 13 years may apply (proper adult supervision required). Volunteer Opportunities Include: Participant counters, surveyors, vendor helpers, intersection guides, and more!
Síclovía volunteers perform a variety of key tasks essential to the success of the event. The majority of these roles are scheduled for event day, but opportunities are available prior to the day of the event as well. Volunteers play a vital role in supporting our staff team, attendees and vendors partners in a variety of roles. Shifts & roles are assigned but can be suited to fit your comfort level and skill set. Volunteer Opportunities Include: Participant counters, surveyors, vendor helpers, intersection guides, and more! Once you register, you can expect an email from the volunteer coordinator by mid September. Duties will be assigned the week of March 25. You will also receive instructions detailing when/ where to park, meet, and any training details pertaining to your duty. All volunteers will receive a goodie bag with snacks, a volunteer t-shirt, and a lunch voucher. On the day-of be sure to wear sunscreen, bring a water bottle, and bring a bike to get around if you want– but don’t forget a helmet!
