We're glad to see you're interested in volunteering for the Corvallis Bicycle Collective. We can always find tasks for willing volunteers. Please drop by our shop during our open hours and join in the fun.
If you're interested in helping the organization run better, raise funds, take pictures, or a number of other tasks to make our organization shine, please fill out this form to tell us how you're able to help us out. Even better, attend our next bi-weekly meeting, introduce yourself, and find out more specifically how you can get involved.
Are you more interested in just helping us work on bikes? Fill out this form to let us know what skills you have and what skills you would like to learn and we'll be glad to put the skills you have to use for our community and help teach you the ones you need.
The benefits to volunteering with us are numerous!
- It's FUN! We work in a social environment. There's music
pumping, a lot of folks coming in and out, conversation, stories, and
strange & wonderful people.
- LEARN mechanical skills. Our specialty tools and expertise are at
your fingertips. The only other learning environment like this is
working at a bike store.
- HELP your community in a major and direct way. People are extremely
grateful when you help them with their transportation needs.
No set hours or commitment. When you arrive, there is plenty to do. Work and learn at your pace.
Are you the type of person who'd love working here? We need:
Do you have more than time to share with Corvallis' bikers?
- The avid recycler. We save hundreds of bikes per year
from going directly to the landfill. Stripping bikes (i.e., separating
metal, rubber, and plastic) is an ongoing task. You need not be a bike
guru to strip - just a desire to join the recycling effort.
- The teacher. Do you have mechanical skills you'd like to
share? Do you enjoy explaining how bikes function? If so, you'll find an
eager and appreciative crowd here.
- The advocate. Although we are not an advocacy organization,
we seek policies and transit solutions at all levels that that help
- The role model. Our community and teaching have allowed a few
people in Corvallis to go car-free. Law and policy alone cannot
spontaneously make that happen.
- The community organizer. There are many in our community with a dire need for transportation. We help keep them going.
- Anyone who wants to learn more about bicycles or bicycling.
