Every Thursday from 2:30pm to 5:00pm, the shop will be open to youth ages 12 to 18 to learn how to repair and maintain their own bikes.
Youth will spend the first hour doing general shop work. Projects could include organizing parts, moving bikes, stripping bikes, taking out the recycling, or painting.
After successfully completeing shop projects, youth will get to work on their own bike!
The role of Youth Assists is to facilitate volunteer projects and bike repair. We say facilitate because we want your hands to be clean at the end of Youth Shop! If Youth Shop Assists have clean hands, that means the kids are doing all the work, which means they're learning more and feeling empowered by fixing their own bikes.
