Regional Volunteer Coordinators
The Tread Lightly! Regional Volunteer Coordinator Program is designed to assist interested Tread Trainers with their local efforts to promote the Tread Lightly! ethic. By creating a network of coordinators, Tread Lightly! hopes to better meet the needs of requests for presentations and promotions at a grassroots level. These active individuals will be a great benefit to Tread Lightly! and the Tread Trainer program because they will help coordinate outreach, education and training in their respective regions or states.
The Regional Volunteer Coordinator position is based loosely on an existing model created by our federal agency partners. In that model, Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service have developed a network of state and/or regional Tread Lightly! coordinators to help promote our message within the agency. Tread Lightly! Volunteer Coordinators, volunteers themselves, will help coordinate Tread Lightly! efforts in their area, provide guidance and support for other Tread Trainers, act as a liaison with Tread Lightly! staff and report on regional Tread Lightly! efforts annually.
