Get involved

How do you get involved?

If you want to become a volunteer, and participate in our educational training as well as the work we do in the community, we ask that you first fill out our volunteer interests survey, and sign up for our newsletter to stay informed on new opportunities as they come up.

A fundamental part of OCBC’s work is to effectively utilize labor from volunteers while advancing their education about bikes, mechanics, and basic job skills; especially how to work collaboratively in very diverse groups as usually found in our shop. We best reflect the co-op’s tenets of respect, resourcefulness and reciprocity when we:

    • value everyone’s work regardless of their background or abilities
    • ensure we give appropriate tasks and good guidance to make the most of everyone’s effort
    • and fairly and consistently provide useful education, honest encouragement, and valued shop credits towards used parts and accessories

 Please fill out the form to the right, and we hope to see you at the co-op!
