Project ReCycle is a new member of Volunteer Connect Douglas County and is actively posting volunteer opportunities. Project ReCycle is a Colorado, Douglas county based 501(c)3 Non-Profit.
Project ReCycle was founded in 2010 to provide smiles to children all over Colorado via a bicycle. That has not changed today. Their first run at this venture led them to create a program that would not only guarantee smiles but would also influence children’s academic behavior in a positive manner. As part of the Dream Bike Program, children are encouraged to earn a bike by improving in 3 areas: Respect, Attendance and Academic Growth.
Project ReCycle works with multiple agencies to provide stability for children. The gifted bicycle becomes a constant in a life of change. Project ReCycle collects bicycles from participating locations on a weekly basis. Bikes are brought back to the repair shop and inspected. If a bike cannot be fixed for reuse, it is dismantled. Each reusable part is salvage for future use. All remaining bike parts are then recycled.
Do you enjoy helping kids? Do you have bike mechanic experience? Perhaps you would enjoy driving to pick up and deliver bikes? Match your passion with one of the many volunteer opportunities at Project ReCycle and make a difference in your community.
