Volunteering at Sharing Wheels

As a nonprofit, Sharing Wheels relies on volunteers. We simply can’t fix used bikes and offer free community shop space without volunteer support.

You don’t need to be a skilled bike mechanic to help out. Ongoing volunteer opportunities are listed below.

To learn more, give us a call, stop by the shop during open hours, or email sharingwheels@gmail.com

Shop Volunteers

People with bike shop experience or mechanical training are always needed in the shop. Keep your skills fresh while helping us refurbish and repair adult and children’s bicycles. Intermediate to advanced mechanics should be able to work on their own with occasional advice  and assistance (where is that tool? ) from more experienced shop volunteers.

Beginning mechanics and non-mechanical volunteers willing to get greasy are also needed. We often host Volunteer Repair Parties where people of all skills can help fix flats, clean bikes, and practice some basics.

Administrative & Promotional Volunteers

Do you do social media? We could use your help with Facebook posts and photos. You can also build computer skills by entering data ad managing files. Other duties may include creating and delivering marketing materials, acknowledging donors, event planning, and organizing donations. Best if you can commit regular time weekly or monthly for consistency.

Event Volunteers

Sharing Wheels is often invited to be part of community events. Local events that support our mission and help promote our work are great places to be – if we have volunteers. Event volunteers help represent Sharing Wheels by staffing a table, sharing shop information, helping with logistics, and returning materials to the shop. If you are interested in helping out at a future community event, contact us.

Upcoming events include:

  • June 24 Bike Bash at Willis Tucker Park near Mill Creek. Volunteers needed to staff our table and do simple bike safety checks.
  • July 20 Project Homeless Connect at Evergreen Middle School. Volunteers needed to help with bike parking, bike safety checks, and minor repairs.
