Community Engagement

Community Bike Shop

screen-shot-2016-12-28-at-1-32-13-amWhile working at the community bike shop, we have gotten closer as a team. Our service site has allowed us to do hands on work while strengthening our communication skills. Every Friday we dedicate a portion of our time to something outside of ourselves in order to contribute to the greater community. Although we do not interact directly with the beneficiaries, helping behind the scenes is just as worthwhile knowing that we are able to fix bikes that would then be either donated or sold at an affordable price. We have been fortunate enough to have this opportunity to lessen the load on those trying to provide resources to those who have less access to them. This not only has the potential to contribute to physical mobility, but also social mobility. This experience has ultimately taught us flexibility and patience, which have become not only practices, but also virtues.
