What is Goodwill Bikes?

Goodwill Bikes works with the Provo Bicycle Collective. Volunteers help refurbish unwanted/unclaimed bicycles donated from private donors or local police departments. These bikes are then donated to individuals in the community such as: children of low-income families, refugees, and individuals who are homeless or unemployed.


Volunteers may do any of the following tasks:

- Repair donated bicycles for giveaway

- Strip parts from donated bicycles that cannot be repaired

- Organize donations

- Clean the shop

- Collect bicycle donations



No previous bicycle experience is necessary! Volunteers who do not yet know about bicycle mechanics will be taught by hands-on experience and guided by a volunteer coordinator.


Volunteer Commitment: Provo Bicycle Collective (397 E 200 N Provo, UT) is open to volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday from 7PM to 10PM. New volunteers attend an orientation at 6:30PM. Weekly volunteering is appreciated, but not required. Groups larger than 10 people please give at least 24 hour notice.


All first time volunteers must register online before attending the orientation: provo-bicycle-collective-volunteer-orientation-tickets-42873658266.


The Provo Bike Collective will only allow 5 new volunteers per night. Also, group larger than 6 must receive written approval from shop management before volunteering. Email to schedule a time.

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.
