Volunteer with us!

Roseville Safe Routes to school is looking for passionate people to help make our neighborhoods more bicycle and pedestrian friendly!

Crossing Guards 

Help kids cross the street safely! Adult crossing guards help more parents feel comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school. Hours and days are flexible, with locations throughout Roseville.

Volunteer School Crossing Guards:

• Help children cross the street safely.

• Play a key role in helping to create safe, walkable streets for students traveling to and from school.

• Remind drivers of the presence of pedestrians.

• Be a role model for children.

To get started as a Volunteer School Crossing Guard, call Yvonne Woosley at 77-5351 or email  ywoosley@roseville.ca.us. All training and equipment is provided.

Bike/Walk Ambassador

Do you enjoy biking or walking, getting active, being a role model, and helping others in Roseville? If so, we want you. Help enrich our community by volunteering as a Bike/Walk Ambassador! You'll be:

* Teaching students and parents how to safely bike to and from school.
* Educating Roseville's trail users on how to Share the Trail.
* Engaging the community at events.

By donating just a few hours a month, you will gain more than you give.
