The Community Organizer will focus on building our member base in Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan and engage residents in shaping a vision for safe and equitable transportation access through and to these neighborhoods. The Community Organizer will also create and coordinate events especially in those neighborhoods to build BCU’s visibility and bring people into the organization, such as bike rides, bike repair, bike talks and partner with local community organizations to be part of their events. The community organizer will also be the lead staff supporting our seasonal free bike repair program, Bike to Market. Depending on COVID-19, the organizer will also have to be creative with virtual events, meetings and outreach.
The Events Manager plays a lead role in planning and executing Boston Cyclists Union (BCU) events, including major fundraisers (Biketoberfest, Bos/treal) and community-building events, like Winter Biker Breakfasts, social rides, and more. This position also manages membership growth and engagement, and works with the BCU’s development team on sponsorship and other fundraising opportunities. There is some general administrative work related to this role, like maintaining our member/contact database of 12,000+ contacts, and sending mailings.
Interns with the BCU can help with organizing, nonprofit management, research and policy development, communications and more.
