Volunteer Opportunities for 2021

SIGN UP FOR A VOLUNTEER SHIFT!

The Gear Hub relies on help from our community to process donations, run programs and events, and recycle gear. No matter your experience level working on bicycles, you can be involved! This season, our trusted Volunteer Leaders will guide newer folks on basics like disassembly, work on kids’ bikes, and prepping bikes to be refurbished. 

Guidelines:

  • Work will be outdoors
  • Please come prepared for the weather – be sure to check your email if it’s iffy outside, we will notify volunteers if the weather is too poor
  • If you are a minor, we’ll ask that your parent or guardian accompanies you on your shift
  • Be ready to get dirty!
  • Please wear your mask and keep a safe distance from your fellow volunteers
