Young people need employment and employable skills including opportunities to become leaders in our community. The “Bicycle Recycle Project @ TheShop” creates a pathway allowing youth the means to develop workplace skills and competency as gently used bicycles are repaired and recycled. Youth have access to all components of running a small business from donation, repair, recycle and customer service as their recycled bikes are made available to those who have few resources to purchase bikes of their own.
Bicycles in good working order can be donated to TheShop for this program by contacting Nathan. The Bicycle Recycle Program runs one day a week during the school year and Friday evenings from 7 to 9.
What do you get when you combine the efforts of TheShop, experts from Life Cycle, and High School Students from the “Tools for Tomorrow” class at Brainerd Learning Center?
Skills, smiles and the opportunity to give back to our community!
