Volunteer Roles

In order to be effective campaigners, YCAN relies on a small group of core volunteers to strategise, coordinate and manage the day-to-day affairs of our organisation. But there are a couple of roles that would help us be even more effective if filled. Do you have any skills that could help us out? Or do you know someone else who’d be willing to volunteer some time with us? If you think that you can help with any of these roles, please contact us at info@ycan.org.au

Yarra Bicycle Advisory Committee Representative

YCAN needs a representative on the City of Yarra’s Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC). We need someone with a keen interest in cycling and sustainable transport as a means to reduce emissions.

Yarra has more residents riding bikes to and from work than any other metropolitan municipality, andYarra Council spends more per capita on bicycle networks, paths, and parking than any other metropolitan Council. The BAC plays a critical role in advocating for cycling and maintaining this successful profile.

BAC activities include

–       consulting on and supporting the construction of Copenhagen Lanes in Wellington St

–       consulting with local cyclists on existing and new proposals for bike infrastructure

–       implementation of the 2010-2015 Bike Strategy.

Our representative would attend the bimonthly meetings, advocate on behalf of YCAN for cycling as a means of sustainable transport and report back to the YCAN general meeting.This is an opportunity to contribute to YCAN in a clearly focussed role.For more information about the BAC, go to the City of Yarra website
