Kids on Wheels, a program of the BC Cycling Coalition, is looking for instructors for our exciting program this summer! In this program, through the use of balance bikes (pedal-less bikes) and classroom activities, such as books, bike toys, songs and discussions, children are exposed to active lifestyles at the earliest possible age.
We are looking for people who are:
Passionate about cycling and have a basic knowledge about bikes
Have experience working with young children (aged 3-5), are enthusiastic and comfortable around kids
- Open to new ideas and suggestions
Reliable and responsible
Available for week long sessions in July and August and two weekend events on June 17 and July 8th
Able to carry a large number of small bikes and boxes with gear
- Can provide a clean criminal record check
We will run five-day sessions in July & August at Kits Community Centre, Trout Lake Community Centre and a daycare in Point Grey. You’ll need to be there for about three hours every day including set-up and clean-up. In addition, on June 17 and July 8 we'll set up Kids on Wheels Zones at Car Free Day in Vancouver.
If you have a vehicle and are able to help with transportation of gear we'll pay for your driving time and vehicle expenses

The payment for the five-day sessions is $300 each, and for the events it is $20 per hour.
Our program is growing! Kids on Wheels will have many more sessions next year, so you might have more work opportunities with us in the future!
Please send a short cover letter and resume to the Kids on Wheels Coordinator Maya Goldstein by Friday, June 1st, 2018, at email@example.com.
