Meet New People
Kingston Summer’s are fantastic, but it can get a bit lonely when all your housemates are gone for the summer and you’re busy working all day. Volunteering for Bikes and Boards can fix that. Volunteering is a great way to meet to new people and make new friends. There’s always someone there, so if you’re there for a shift or just looking for some company, it’s just a quick bike ride away.
Gain New Skills
Not everyone was born a Bike Mechanic. Luckily, you don’t have to know anything about fixing things to volunteer and Bikes and Boards. You’ll get hands on training from people who know what they’re doing, and soon enough you’ll know too. Then the next time your bike chain falls off, you can get back on track instead of calling someone for a ride home.
Be Part of the Community
Queen’s has a large, vibrant student community that is always working to better the school. Just because most people leave during the summer doesn’t mean that community does too. Volunteering at Bikes and Boards helps you to be a part of the larger Queen’s Community during the summer. That means more opportunities, more good times, and making a meaningful impact on campus for you and your fellow students.
Save the World
One of the major perks of riding bikes and long boards is the gas mileage. You can go as long as you want without spending a dime on fuel, and without creating any exhaust. The planet will love you, and if you volunteer and Bikes and Boards, you’ll be helping everyone else do the same thing. All those people out of cars and on bikes can make a big difference. You’re basically saving the planet. No big deal.
