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 50,000 visitors twice a year.
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.
