GoodTurn Cycles provides on-the-job training to young people. The goal of our program is to develop well-rounded individuals capable of securing positions in the professional career world. Our internship program is geared toward permanent positive change, so we emphasize individual attention, helping participants set personal and professional goals while working together toward meeting them.
The Job Training Program is a 3-month experience in which participants work 8-12 hours per week in the bicycle shop. During the training, interns will work through a job readiness curriculum that equips them to find, maintain, and contribute to meaningful employment. Interns are paired with a member of our staff to mentor them through their program. Mentors walk alongside interns through their program and provide assistance in finding jobs, preparing for interviews, and coping with all life throws at them. Certain individuals may be eligible for a paid work experience or school credit (depending on the school).
