Sunday Streets: The Mission

Sunday Streets is kicking off the 5th season with our second event in the Mission! On Sunday, April 14th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Mission will be transformed into a space for you to bike, walk, run, do yoga, dance, play.

Intersection Monitors have the best seat in the house at Sunday Streets! These volunteers help ensure everyone has a safe and fun time at Sunday Streets. Intersection Monitors answer questions about the event, greet participants, and help City Traffic Control Officers keep the route car-free by. This is a great role for anyone enjoys the excitement of Sunday Streets and loves to people-watch or engage others.

Volunteer shifts are 10:30am-1:30pm and 1:15-4:15pm.

All volunteers are required to attend one training session each season, either on the day of an event or in advance.

Volunteers under 18 years old must have a parent or gaurdian sign a waiver; volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For information about volunteering with a group of 4 or more, contact

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Sunday Streets. It takes hundreds of energetic and dedicated volunteers to make each season possible; we couldn’t do it without you!
