At HUB volunteers play a very important role in support of our two key functions:
Since our humble beginnings, voluntary contribution of time and skills have been vital.
Our volunteers assist in all aspects of bike refurbishment, including bike collection, documentation, data collection, cleaning, parts harvesting, partial rebuilding and housekeeping.
Volunteers also assist Fix Your Own Bike sessions, which provides access to stands, tools, and experienced mechanics, enabling members of the public to develop bike maintenance skills.
Additionally, our volunteers provide excellent service to community-based projects including HUB Pop Up and Dr Bike events where our mobile workshops conduct bike repairs; and Play on Pedals teaching infants to ride bikes.
All HUB volunteers receive training for all the above roles. Within a short period of time our volunteers can expect to be confident in stripping bikes, basic bike mechanic skills, and working within a busy workshop environment.
For those involved in our community-based projects our volunteers will have developed group work skills, community engagement knowledge, and will improve their cycling and mechanic skills along the way.
