Volunteering

Interested in Volunteering at The WRENCH?

There are many different ways for people of all skill levels and backgrounds to volunteer at The WRENCH (The Winnipeg Repair Education N’ Cycling Hub).  If you love bicycles (and there are about a million reasons to); The WRENCH is for you!

The Perks:

-Learn empowering and practical repair skills

-Access all the tools and parts you need to fix your bike

-Feel the satisfaction of genuinely helping those in need

-Become engaged in a diverse community

-Earn a bicycle and/or bike parts — for every hour of volunteering you earn $10 in “Bike Bucks”, which can be spent on used parts or un-repaired bicycles.  (See “Suggested Donations” sheet for pricing of parts and “Bike Build Work Trade” sheet for details on how to trade volunteer hours for a bicycle).
