Education Program

Working with schools

The Community Bike Hub engages students in being proactive members of the circular economy.  As soon as students enter the workshop, it is all hands-on action! Tools, parts, and bikes come together as students explore a ‘new world’ of mechanics,  sustainability and community. By producing tangible outcomes that have ‘real world’ impacts such as decreasing landfill and improving access to bicycles for people, each and every student at the Bike Hub is given the opportunity to make the world a better place.

Through our work with Footscray High School we have helped middle years secondary school students develop practical skills in bike repairs, recycling and maintenance. Last financial year (2022-2023) 312 students from Footscray High completed our education program and helped repair and refurbish hundreds of bikes.

School holiday program

We occasionally offer special workshops for young people during the school holidays. These programs are focused on providing practical skills in bike maintenance and repair for young people and are facilitated by experienced educators and volunteers.

Our next school holiday program at the Community Bike Hub will be on April 2, 3, 9 and 10.
