get involved - become an assistant

A JRSO's job is a very important job. A JRSO is very busy organising competitions and assemblies for your school. You can get involved by helping. A JRSO needs assistants to help with running the JRSO scheme in your school.

As a JRSO Assistant you may have to:-

  • Help maintain a central notice board and make sure the road safety information on it is kept up-to-date

  • Help prepare talks for assemblies and classes on road safety topics

  • Help run competitions in the school and get prizes for the winners

  • Help to hand out merit certificates

  • Use the website

  • Write letters for your JRSO Officer

  • Help employ next year’s JRSOs by displaying the advert, handing out application forms.

They can also make a big difference to local road safety issues such as parents parking too close to the school gate, helping recruit volunteer cycle instructors, getting better street lighting, and many, many more great ideas.
