As Shop Staff you will learn the ins and outs of the shop by working alongside another staff member. There are three staff positions: Greeter, Mechanic, and Teacher.
Greeters sign patrons in, answer questions about the organization, make patron cards for new shop users, and conduct transactions. Mechanics help people diagnose and repair their bikes during Open Shop, and help shoppers look for the correct parts. Teachers instruct and assist with classes, such as the Rebuild-A-Bike Class, attempting a hands-off approach to encourage learning.
Those who staff at least two, 3 hour sessions a month have access to Open Shop for free.
Velocipede is in need of volunteers for checking-in donated bikes, sorting parts, building bikes for sale, cleaning, carpentry, and many other tasks aside from staffing. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
