Accepting Applications

Reno Bike Project’s FutureCycle Program uses our community bike shop as a setting to teach youth the skills needed for a lifetime of employment. Participants gain skills to be employable (in any local bike shop or in other professional fields) through 15 weeks of paid training and internship.

Drawing on existing programs that teach safe riding and bicycle repair, we incorporate job skills training such as resume building, interviewing, customer service skills, and more. Participants start the program with training in the fundamentals of safe riding and in-depth bicycle repair. They rebuild a used bicycle to commute on and keep after the program, and continue to build and refine their skills. Participants finish the program with a 5-week externship with a partnering bike shop in town. Upon graduation, it is the our goal to have produced highly desirable bicycle shop employees with relationships and references from RBP and the partnering shops.

Want to join our next cohort and earn while you learn? Interested youth and adults in their lives can view the job description, with instructions on how to apply for our Spring/Summer 2018 program (3/6-6/19) here.
