Bicycle workshop youth mentor - Melbourne
The Community Bike Hub is a social enterprise who's mission is ‘Building Bikes - Building Community’. Our work is focused on providing wider access to affordable bicycles, learning and community engagement.
This program is a partnership between Footscray High School and the Community Bike Hub. It is an immersive youth development program that runs out of our dedicated bicycle resource centre and workshop. The year 9 program builds skills, knowledge, confidence and capabilities through hands-on skill-building tasks.
Tools, parts, and bikes come together as students explore a 'new world' of mechanics, sustainability and community. By producing tangible outcomes that have 'real world' impacts such as decreasing landfill and improving access to bicycles for people, each and every student at the Bike Hub is given the opportunity to make the world a better place.
