The Recyclery teaches youth bicycle maintenance, riding safety, and environmental awareness.
Youth Open Shop
Youth Open Shop: Wednesday 3:15 pm – 5:15 pm
Youth Open Shop is for young people ages 11-21 to fix their own bikes and help us recycle donated bikes, while learning about bicycle repair and maintenance. As youth participants build their mechanics skills, they may be asked to assist other youth who come to the shop. Youth may earn-a-bike of their own or earn shop credit that can be used to purchase bike parts and accessories. It’s all part of our effort to empower young people to be more self-sufficient and capable as bikers and as young adults.
Older youth learn advanced mechanics and work ethics through our internships. We collaborate with local youth organizations to connect with potential interns. Placements are flexible based on the skills and interest of the youth.
