VOLUNTEER WITH US

Volunteers help make many aspects of Trips for Kids Charlotte possible. Here's how you can get involved:

  • Ride Program: Be a buddy to our young cyclists on rides at Colonel Francis Beatty Park and elsewhere.

  • Earn-A-Bike Program: If you’re an experienced bike mechanic and can explain concepts to kids, you may want to teach bike safety, maintenance and repair. Each class consists of three, two-hour sessions.

  • Charlotte Re-Cyclery: We need experienced bike mechanics to help us refurbish bikes at our shop. You can also volunteer to simply lend a hand.
