Thanks for your interest in volunteering with the Community Bike Project Omaha!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Bike Project! Here are some volunteer positions we’re always looking to fill during Open Shop and Earn-a-Bike programs:

  • Volunteer Coordinator – Volunteer coordinators coordinate and effectively communicate to other volunteers work that needs to be completed during Open Shop.
  • Traffic Flow Manager – The Traffic Flow Manager manages the flow of people in and out of the Shop, ensuring that people who arrive at the shop are greeted warmly and providing an explanation to each guest regarding wait times for repairs with a volunteer mechanic.
  • Volunteer Mechanic – Volunteer Mechanics are the mentors and teachers to the guests coming to the Shop to learn to maintain their bicycles.
  • Key Holders – The Key Holders are the primary leadership group that make decisions regarding the day-to-day operations of the shop.  They are also core volunteers that design and implement programming and events.
