Learn to Row with PCR!

City of Philadelphia is recruiting Vision Zero Ambassadors – $1,000 stipend, apply by Sunday, May 29!

Are you concerned about car crashes, speeding, and other traffic safety issues in your community?
Do you want to learn what the City is doing about it and share with your community what can be done?
Do you want to collaborate with a group of like-minded individuals on traffic safety issues across the city?
 
We are looking for outgoing and motivated people to become the first-ever Vision Zero Ambassadors this summer and help spread the word about Vision Zero and traffic safety amongst friends, neighbors, and groups they are part of. Vision Zero Ambassadors will be the voice of their community around traffic safety issues. Vision Zero Ambassadors will also work with other ambassadors to create Vision Zero messages and activities that resonate with their communities. This program is modeled after the successful Indego Ambassadors program.
 
Selected ambassadors are expected to attend two training sessions on June 16 and June 23. During these sessions, ambassadors will be trained on traffic safety concepts, Vision Zero, and the resources that are available within the City. They will also receive support and guidance from City staff during their ambassador engagement period (June-September 2022). For their time and effort, Vision Zero Ambassadors will receive a stipend of $1,000 upon completion of the program. People who are well-connected to lower-income communities and communities of color are encouraged to apply! 
 
 
Applications are due by the end of the day on Sunday, May 29.
 
For questions about the program, contact Waffiyyah Murray at waffiyyah.murray@phila.gov. 
 
Thank you!
