Cycles for Change Excited to Offer Youth Apprenticeship for Summer 2013
After our successful second attempt we are very excited to again be able to offer a program for youth that is directed at engaging youth in bicycle mechanics by offering a paid apprenticeship. The focus of the program is to further Cycles for Change's mission by engaging our community in order to empower people to use bicycles as an alternative form of transportation. Apprentice mechanics will learn bike maintenance and repair skills, receive training on the operation of a small business and non-profit, and help co-teach bike repair classes for youth and adults. To apply fill out the application and email it to email@example.com
Sibley Bike Depot is Cycles for Change
Sibley Bike Depot is now Cycles for Change! After considering more than 100 different new name suggestions over the winter, the organization chose Cycles for Change (C4C) as a name that more closely embodies the organization’s continuing vision for utilizing the bicycle as a tool for community building, sustainability, leadership development, and progressive social change. We understand that this change will take some time to get used to. Please help spread the word by telling your family, friends and colleagues about the name change!
