Street Ambassadors

Street Ambassadors

Street Ambassadors are the Open Streets event hosts and street safety monitors. As an Ambassador, you will be stationed at intersections or roving the street to help set up and take down barricades, keep cars off the route, and help pedestrians and cyclists move safely through the busy event. You'll also be present to answer any questions of eventgoers and assist the Our Streets team in measuring event attendance.

Break Down Crew

Breakdown Crew

As a Break Down Crew Volunteer, you have the important role of rolling up and down the Open Streets route reminding bikers, walkers and rollers that the street will be returned to car traffic at 5pm.
