DIY Tools, Skills, Knowledge and Community Enpowerment!

Get Involved

LITE welcomes participants, volunteers and collaborators of all ages and skills. Retired folks, youth and bi-linguals especially welcome as well as donations and suggestions.

On weekend afternoons we need bike mechanics, greeters and bike cleaners. If time allows, we are willing to train in real time. Drop-ins are often welcome, as are regular volunteers interested in co-creating meaningful, useful and enjoyable DIY initiatives.

Folks interested in repairing bikes must be experienced with tools and/or willing to learn, and comfortable working in groups.

Tuesday - Friday planning and outreach help is needed as well as cleaning and handyperson tasks.

For additional information, please contact us using the information in the top right hand block. Thanks!
