Cleveland Out and About

Leading an Event

If you are leading an event, please bring a copy of the release form and have all participants sign it, then give the signed form to Jan after the event.

So you want to lead....

GREAT! Event leaders are what keep Out and About alive and growing. Obviously, if there are no leaders, then there are no events. New volunteers coming forward to help with leading and organizing events will allow us to offer more hikes, more bike rides, and a greater variety of activities.

If you have an idea for an event that you'd like to lead, here's what you need to do:

  1. Contact us with the following info:

    • event type (hike, bike, canoe, etc)
    • date you'd like to lead the event
    • location
    • general description

  2. We'll work with you to fit your event into our schedule and send an experienced leader to assist you on your first lead.

  3. Arrive at your event 10-15 minutes prior to the start. Bring a copy of our release form with you and have all participants sign it. This form completely releases you and Cleveland Out and About from all responsibility for the actions and safety of the participants.

  4. After the completion of the event, give the completed release forms to Jan and send a brief e-mail to with a description of the event and how it went.
