Freewheels Houston volunteers repair bikes and learn new skills as they provide mobility to people who need a way to get to work, school and other destinations
Our workdays are collegial, fun and productive. We put an emphasis on safety and giving people opportunities to put their skills to work. Along the way, you will learn new things, make new friends and give back to the community.
If you already know your way around bikes, we will put you to work on a bike right away. If you want to learn more about bike repair, our experienced volunteer mechanics will help you learn.
Our experienced volunteers also double-check repaired bikes before they are placed in our distribution inventory.
We welcome volunteers 14 years old and older to participate without parental supervision. Younger people may participate with parental supervision.
Freewheels Houston currently is operating on a reduced schedule. We welcome volunteers to 6020 Jessamine #204, Houston, TX 77081 for bike repair shifts on Fridays from 9 a.m. to noon. Please consult the calendar to confirm days and times.
Other volunteer opportunities
We also have other tasks around the shop and we’re looking for help on other assignments such as helping distribute bikes, bike safety instruction and the communications and administrative work that will enable Freewheels to grow.
