We are looking for experienced bicycle mechanics as well as individuals with good mechanical knowledge who will receive training from us to become bike repair technicians. Please let us know if you would like to be added to our list of mechanics that we invite to participate in tune-up days at local schools.

  • Social media skills,

  • Fundraising experience,

  • School administration background

If you have interest in joining our board or a committee, please contact us.

Help bring the program to your school: We would like to expand our program to include all elementary the schools in the Region of Waterloo in both Public and Catholic boards within the next 6 years. If you are a teacher or administrator at a local school, please get in touch with us to see what you can do to help bring our program to your school.

Donate a bike: As part of of covenant of inclusion, we provide a refurbished bike to every student in the program who does not have a bike and who’s family is not able to get one for them. After the program, they get to keep this bike! So,we are always in need of bikes for grade 5 and 6 students taking our course. A wheel size of 24 inches is the typical size of bike for a 9-11 year old. This is also our most demanded bike size within our program so your donations are greatly appreciated! Please see our donations page if you have a bike you would like to donate.

Make a donation: In order to make this program affordable, we only charge families a small portion of the total cost of this course. Our student fee is only $25 while the course costs over $60 per student to run. The remainder of the cost needs to be raised from the community for this course to continue running. If you would like to contribute, please see our donations page to make a donation via PayPal or contact us if you would like to make a donation using another method.

Become a corporate sponsor: The contributions of our generous partners are key to helping our program continue to run and grow. We are open to many types of sponsorships and look forward to discussing how we can work together. Please contact us if your organization would like to become one of our sponsors.

Finally, we welcome your ideas about how we can better move towards our goal.
