What is Goodwill Bikes?

The Goodwill Bikes program works closely with the Provo Bicycle Collective to fulfill their mission of bringing bikes to those in need. Volunteers work in a team setting to fix and refurbish bikes. They prepare them for specific individuals in need within the community - such as children of low-income families, refugees, and individuals who are homeless or unemployed. Volunteers are involved for the entire process of selecting, fixing, and giving the bikes away.

 

No previous experience with bikes is necessary! Bike specific repair skills are taught through hands-on experience guided by core volunteers and shop employees.
 
Volunteer Commitment: The Provo Bicycle Collective has set aside a time for BYU students to come each Saturday from 9am to 12 PM. Volunteers should be willing to commit to come serve at this time relatively consistently (about two times a month). The Provo Bike Collective also accepts volunteers Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-10 PM.
 

For any questions you may have, feel free to contact any of the program directors (texts preferred) or email us at goodwillbikes@byu.edu.

I loved my time working with Goodwill Bikes. I learned a ton about how to repair bikes and felt like my efforts really made a difference.
