Frequently Asked Questions :
How can I come and volunteer at Yellow Bike?

Do I have to know anything about bikes to volunteer?
No. Most of our volunteers have little or no experience wrenching when they first arrive and there are lots of other ways to lend a hand. Fill out our Volunteer form for other volunteer opportunities.
I would like to volunteer to help run one of your Community Workshops. How do I start?
Fill out our Volunteer form and express interest in becoming a Workshop Coordinator and we will take it from there.
Can I do the court-ordered Community Service Restitution (CSR) hours at Yellow Bike?
Community Service Restitution (CSR) – Court-ordered CSR hours can be fulfilled at Yellow Bike, as well as community service hours required by educational institutions. Come by during any Community or Volunteer Shop, and we’ll put you to work. CSR tasks usually include cleaning, groundskeeping, and sorting parts, but it’s not unusual for folks doing CSR to end up doing some wrenching, too. All in all, Yellow Bike is a pretty fun and educational place to fulfill your obligations. Don’t forget your paperwork! While we keep track of all users’ hours on our database, your sign-in on the shop computer is purely for our own records. Making sure your hours are signed off by a coordinator each time you visit is your responsibility. Hours volunteered towards court-ordered community service don’t count towards Earn-a-Bike or apprenticeship.
