RENO— The Reno Bike Project is looking for an instructor for the Major Taylor Program’s spring session with Rainshadow Charter High School. The Major Taylor Program is a youth cycling program that teaches teenagers how to ride bicycles and the benefits of bicycling.

The Major Taylor Program gives underserved and disadvantaged teens in the Reno-Sparks area a chance to experience cycling both on the road and mountain.  Members of the program learn safe cycling techniques, riding in traffic, bike maintenance and nutrition. All equipment, including bikes and helmets are provided by the Reno Bike Project.

The Major Taylor Program instructor is responsible for not only instructing the students in a classroom setting, but also leading them on rides.  The instructor is responsible for instructing each class for both classroom lessons and leading the ride portion of the classes, acting as the program’s head mechanic and collaborating with the AmeriCorps VISTA on curriculum development and planning.

Instructors will be required pass a background check prior to class instruction to ensure the safety of the students. The instructor will be compensated at $15/hour, unless otherwise determined by the Executive Director. This is a temporary, part-time position. If interested, send cover letter and resume to by Friday.
