Become a Student Advisor

Students at bike collectionThe West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance is once again looking for student advisors to work with its trustees over the next 12 months.

Applicants must attend West Windsor-Plainsboro schools or live in West Windsor and attend other schools in the area or be home-schooled. 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 that will make our community friendlier for bicyclists and pedestrians. This year’s student advisors played a big part in our community bike ride, but student advisors have considerable freedom to come up with a project that interests them. It’s 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.

Learn more about what’s involved here.

The application deadline for the next round of student advisors is February 21, 2011.
