Traffic Safe Communities Network (TSCN) is a community collaborative guided by the Public Health Department. TSCN partners represent law enforcement, engineering, public health, injury prevention, elected officials, education, judicial system, emergency medical services, bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups, and other traffic saftey stake holders. The combined effort of TSCN's members have contributed to the countywide reduction in motor vehicle crashes and improvement in bicycle and pedestrian safety.
Traffic Safe Communities Network (TSCN) is looking for energetic, fun individuals who enjoy working with youth and helping out in their community. TSCN needs volunteers to help observe and record motor vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycling behaviors around elementary schools in cities such as San Jose, Los Gatos, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara. This is a great way to get involved in your community and contribute to creating safer ways for youth to get to and from school.
TSCN also needs volunteers to help run Bike Rodeos. Rodeos are hands-on events where youth are led through fun and exciting bike stations that teach them the importance of bicycle and road safety. These opportunities would be a great way for high school and college students to earn easy volunteer hours, and for community members and bicycle enthusiasts to help create a safer environment in their local communities.
No experience is needed; volunteers will be trained on site.
