NASHVILLE, TN—With many members and volunteering programs provided by Nashville's Oasis Center to participate, the Bike Workshop is suitable for those who are passionate about exploring with bikes or simply enjoy doing good to others. The program focuses on engaging with the community by spreading knowledge about how to safely biking around the city, as well as providing services to improve their bicycle gear. Participants will be able to collaborate with volunteer mentors to build a bike from frame to finish. In addition, they will also learn how to do bike repairs and maintenance, as well as ways to practice safe biking.

After completing the program, the participants can keep the bike they’ve built, along with a safety helmet, tool kit, and a newfound opportunity for healthy living and the ability to explore around their neighborhood. The participants also take a pledge to pass on their new skills to help others in their community. Bicycles are donated by members of the community. There are approximately 127 youth participants served in the 2018-2019 school year at the Bike Workshop.

Interested applicants with a fun, outgoing personality and willing to get their hands dirty helping young people as they learn the skills of bike maintenance are encouraged to apply for Bike Workshop volunteer.
