Seeking Senior Volunteers for John Barsby Bike Club

Being hosted by John Barsby Secondary, Operation Generation is an opportunity for both seniors and high-school students alike to learn together.  Starting on January 23rd, 2013 we will be running bike mechanics workshops for youth and seniors to work together at John Barsby Secondary.  The program will be running weekly on Wednesdays from 11 – 1pm, and will require participants to have a free criminal record check done. 

The program will be running weekly for at least 5 months, and is an opportunity to gain mechanic skills, as well as give back to the young adults in our society.  The program will be facilitated by our qualified bicycle mechanic instructors, and will focus on various bicycle mechanic systems offering participants a rounded education in bicycle mechanics and repair.

This project is funded by Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.
