Volunteer Your Time


Much of Yellow Bike Project happens through volunteer labor and community support. We encourage those who have benefited from the the shop consider volunteering to give back to YBP. You don’t have to know anything about bikes to volunteer! In fact, most our volunteers have little or no experience wrenching when they first arrive and there are lots of other ways to lend a hand.

Volunteer tasks include fixing up adult and kid bikes, sorting parts, organizing and cleaning the shop, maintaining the grounds, and more. There are also lots of good ways to learn about bikes, bike parts, and how to use all those specialty tools you see all around the shop.

If you are interested in volunteering to learn, earn a bike, or generally contribute, fill our volunteer form to express where you are interested in getting involved and as always talking to workshop coordinators is a great way to learn more. 

Volunteer Workshops

WHO: Volunteers wanting to help YBP serve our cycling community.

WHAT: Volunteer workshops to refurbish bikes, organize parts, etc. (unlike Community Workshop, volunteers may not work on their own bikes or projects).

WHEN: Every 2nd and 4th Tuesdays 6-9 PM. Reservation required. Click https://yellowbikevolunteers.youcanbook.me to see available times and to make your reservation. We cannot accept walk-in, sorry.

WHERE: 1216 Webberville Road.

Please Note: The COVID-19 pandemic means we can’t just open the doors to everyone. We plan to host two or three volunteers with one or two facilitating YBP coordinators . If you’re still interested in volunteering, please reserve your YBP bench space and shop time and read and acknowledge YBP’s COVID-19 hygiene protocols (on the booking page).  Reservations will be available four weeks from the current date. Space is strictly limited to six people, including YBP coordinators, so reserve your bench time soon.

The Shop will be open only to those who reserve bench time. Walk ins cannot be admitted. Volunteers who reserve bench time will receive a reservation confirmation with a telephone number to call when they arrive at the shop. Volunteers should bring their own face masks and water bottles.

We hope to see you soon.
