Redemptive Cycles survives not only through donations, but also through volunteer labor.
The area in which we are most in need is bike mechanics; there are always bikes to fix and not enough people to do it. If you have mechanics skills we would love to have you come and swing a wrench. We have a volunteer calender in shop where you can sign up for a day, morning, or afternoon to come in.
If you don't have mechanics skills not to worry. We still need help in other areas.
The main issue is no matter what you have to offer some training is necessary. Learning how the shop works and how to help customers can be just as technical as mechanics. Either way it will take a few weeks to get familiar with everything before you're really grinding out some productivity.
Training volunteers is an investment on our part, it takes our guys extra time to teach everything. So if your interested in volunteering please know we are looking for long term members of our team. Teaching someone everything and then watching them go MIA after a month is heart breaking. So if your going to become a part of our family, don't back out on us, because family sticks together!
Perks of Volunteering:
1: Free repairs
2: Discounted in-store items... even free used parts at times.
3: Education galore!
4: Being part of our awesome community
5: And it always feels good to help others.
If your interested in becoming a volunteer. Don't call. Don't email. Don't write a letter. Just come into the shop and start talking with us. We welcome anyone to hang out and we can figure out the logistics from there!
