The South Atlanta Bike Shop is a youth development program of FCS. The Bike Shop's mission is operating a professional bicycle repair shop as a method of developing significant young leaders that bring a lasting positive change to the community.
Youth from our South Atlanta neighborhood and surrounding communities earn points working in the bike shop, and they use these points to purchase bicycles, bike accessories, replacement parts, and to pay for bike trip registration fees.
The South Atlanta Bike Shop is looking for volunteer mentors to work with our youth. No prior mechanic experience required!
What we look for in volunteers:
- Ability to lead youth by example in excellence, work ethic, communication, self-awareness, confidence, learning and positiveness
Good communication skills
Clean criminal record
What do you gain when volunteering with us?
Serving in this capacity will allow you the opportunity to have a meaningful impact on a young person’s life. It also give you the chance to develop bicycle mechanic skills!
How much of my time is required?
The youth program runs from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm Monday - Thursday. You can commit to as many work shifts as you’d like with a minimum of one every two weeks.
I’m in! What are next steps?
Please fill out our volunteer application.
After an initial interview, we’ll run a background check and reach out to your references.
Then, we’ll schedule your orientation/training and get you started in the rotation!
Thank you for considering this opportunity! We're grateful for all our volunteers and the impact they have on our young leaders.
