Volunteer

Thanks for your interest in volunteering at the Off the Chain! We welcome volunteers of any skill level. Off the Chain is a 100% volunteer-run organization and we depend on the generous efforts of volunteers. Your role as a volunteer will be defined by your specific skills and interest, and we regularly have volunteer tasks that require no mechanical experience.

Ways to get involved:

Greeting
This is a really good way to orientate yourself with the shop. On a busy summer day it is a great deal of help to have someone who can accept donations, make customers feel welcomed and assist with test rides and the check out process.

General Help
We can always use a hand keeping the place organized and clean. This can mean sorting parts, hanging bikes up or organizing the library.

Social Events
Do you have a great idea for a social event or fundraiser? Are you looking to do bike valet for another organizations event? We like to partner with other community organizations as well as host our own events. We now have a great shop space that is perfect for showing films or having social gatherings for up to 50 people. We sometimes get sidetracked just trying to keep the shop open during the summer and could use a little more fun. If you want to plan an event for Off the Chain, please contact us!

Loot
We like t-shirts, stickers and swag just as much as the next person. If you can make shirts, stickers or flyers please let us know!
