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 bike mechanics skills, we would love to have you come and swing a wrench. We have a volunteer calendar 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 bike 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 you're 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 you're going to become a part of our family, don't back out on us, because family sticks together!
