    Overview

    The Recyclery Collective is an educational bike shop that promotes sustainability by giving access to tools, skills, and opportunities for collaboration.

    Youth Open Shop is for young people ages 11-21 to fix their own bikes and help us recycle donated bikes while learning bicycle repair. As they build their mechanics skills, participants may begin to assist other youth who come to the shop. Youth may earn themselves a bike or earn credit toward used bike parts and accessories.

    Bike Club: Partnering with local youth organizations, participants learn about safe commuting skills while on group rides and maintenance skills in our shop.

    Job Training and Youth Internships: Older youth learn advanced mechanics and work ethics through our internships. We collaborate with local youth organizations to connect with potential interns. Placements are flexible based on the skills and interest of the youth.
