ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER PLEASE COME TO THE YALE BOWL ON RIDE MORNING.

If you’re not into pedaling we’d still love to have you join our community as a volunteer. Here’s your chance to put your energy and enthusiasm into one of our two types of volunteer opportunities:  Yale Bowl Volunteers and Road Crew Volunteers.  Both are crucial to the success of the Ride and the major difference between them is the time you’re able to commit to the event. If you’re able to commit to the entire day and are 18 or older, please register as a Road Crew Volunteer. Yale Bowl Volunteers commit to shorter shifts during event day.

If you’re under the age of 18, please contact us at rideclosertofree@ynhh.org or 203.200.CTFR (2837) to discuss volunteer opportunities. Youths 16-18 are welcome to volunteer unchaperoned in our Kid Zone at the Yale Bowl.  Youths 12-15 are welcome to volunteer with a parent or guardian in our Kid Zone at the Yale Bowl. 

Please register ONLY if you are able to complete the entire required shift.  See shift times below.
