My project is a shed space where youth will have the opportunity to gain skills in all things mechanical.
It will be a space run by the community for the community.
Volunteers will be from all walks of life with an interest in the development of youth and all things mechanical.
The first activity revolves around reliable transport hence starting with bicycles.
Participants will undertake a workshop to learn all about the operation, maintenance and repair of bicycles.
Donated bikes will be recycled and once the participant completes the workshop the bike will be theirs for FREE.
Other aspects of the shed will be the a place to drop in to undertake regular repair and maintenance and purchase both parts and accessories at discounted rates.
Working on collaborations will local bike shop Riviera Cycles, Gippsland East Learn Local Alliance and Good Cycles in Melbourne. Bicycles are only the beginning will small engines, motorbikes and cars to follow.
