We’re taking a big step as an organization. In early 2014 we will establish a Spokane staff position that will strengthen and support activities in eastern Washington.
As a School and Family Programs Coordinator, this person will work with the Spokane Regional Health District, area schools, and the Empire Health Foundation to increase the number of kids in Spokane County who bike and walk to school.
Thanks to a grant from the Empire Health Foundation, Washington Bikes will also establish a network to support P.E. teachers in Ferry, Pend Oreille, and Stevens Counties in their efforts to add bicycle and pedestrian safety to their curriculum and get more kids walking and rolling.
You can view the School and Family Programs Coordinator job description here. To apply, please send your resume and cover letter, including names and contact information for three references, to Seth Schromen-Wawrin at firstname.lastname@example.org, by January 20, 2014. Include examples of materials you have created for event marketing, workshop presentation, and other elements of the position if available; links to online examples preferred.
In a nice connection with our history, this program builds on the work of past Board member Eileen Hyatt of Spokane. The bike curriculum she launched in Spokane served as the genesis of what is now a statewide Washington Bikes program reaching over 10,000 students each year in over 30 school districts.
