Becoming A Leader
Sidewalkers are imperative to our program as they assist the riders during class on the tasks that the instructors have assigned. After volunteering with us for a complete session, you can undergo Basic Leader Training to achieve a Level 1 or Level 2 Leader Level. To become an advanced leader (L3/L4), you must attend an advanced leader training or schedule an appointment to be evaluated by our Executive Director. Once approved as a Leader, you will be assigned as a Leader OR Sidewalker during classes.
At This Time, We Don't Have Any Leader Training's Scheduled.
