Seeking Student Advisors

Wednesday, December 19 by silvia

The WWBPA is once again seeking student advisors interested in working to make our community even friendlier for bicyclists and pedestrians. Applicants must attend West Windsor-Plainsboro schools or live in West Windsor and attend other schools in the area or be home-schooled. The deadline for applications is February 18 (Presidents’ Day), and terms are for one year (and are renewable).

Serving as a student advisor is an excellent way for students to make a difference in their community while developing organizational skills, helping to plan and publicize events, and learning to advocate before local government for improvements. The WWBPA’s activities this year included numerous bike rides and walks, a bike drive and a ?learn to bike? class. Students have considerable freedom to come up with a project that interests them. This is also a great way for any student considering a college major in environmental sciences, engineering or political science, among other areas, to gain some hands-on experience in their general area of interest.
