Walk Leader 
Walk Richmond

Description

Walk Richmond is an initiative aimed at building a legacy of healthy lifestyles in Richmond by engaging people in life-long walking. Free guided walks for people of all ages are led by the Richmond Fitness and Wellness Association on a weekly basis throughout the year. Walk participants walk at their own pace and ability level. As a result, there is a need to have at least 3 volunteer "Walk Leaders" at each weekly walk. The purpose of the Walk Leader is to share their love of walking and to facilitate and guide the participants along the local walking routes. Many of the participants will look to the Walk Leader for guidance and support.

The Walk Leader is someone who is:

-Passionate for walking and has previous experience in leadership or fitness walking
-Familiar with Richmond, and the walking routes and trails
-Friendly and enthusiastic -Is welcoming and has the communication skills needed to give clear instructions throughout the walk
-Reliable and punctual
-Able to keep a group together and motivated.

Duties of the Walk Leader:

-Be familiar with the Walk Richmond program

-Familiarize yourself with the walks

-Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately

-Arrive in good time and welcome all walkers

-Lead the walk at a measured pace which suits the group as a whole.

-Make sure the group remains together throughout the walk

It is expected that the Walk Leaders should be available to lead at least one walk per
month for at least one year. Additional opportunities for Walk Richmond volunteers include special events (ie. Doors Open, Harvestfest).

Additional info: All Walk Leader volunteers are expected to attend a 2 hour training session which will familiarize them with the Walk Richmond program, expected duties and safe walking tips. Dates and times for these training sessions are TBA. In addition, Walk Leaders must complete a Criminal Records Check and maintain current certification in First Aid and CPR. All volunteers and participants are covered by insurance through the Richmond Fitness and Wellness Association.
