Volunteer – How You Can Help The Most!
Select a volunteer role that’s best for you. Register now and get started volunteering for Free Bikes 4 Kidz Chicago!
We have three different volunteer categories for refurbishing the bikes. Don’t worry, our registration process will get you to the right place:
Cleaners – Each bike gets a good, thorough cleaning before moving on to the next stage. Just bring yourselves, we’ve got supplies!
Preppers – Take care of the easy stuff, mechanically speaking: Grease seat posts, change tires, swap saddles, new grips, new pedals, etc.
Mechanics – Knowledge and skills required. Change cables, adjust shifting, adjust brakes, true wheels, adjust bearings.
Hands-on not your thing? Want to help in other ways? We need site leads and help with administrative duties. There’s plenty to do and we’ll find a good fit for you. Please email us with your contact info and we’ll respond as quickly as possible to find a good opportunity for you.
We’re collecting bikes in April – and then the refurbish stage will begin. The warehouse volunteer season runs mid April – mid June.
Joining us for multiple shifts? Please note: our registration system requires you to register for each shift.
We have three roles to fill. Just answer a quick question or two and we will determine where your valuable talents can be best put to use!
