Each One Teach One
The BRC University is a popular education based skill sharing program to develop new community leaders and support the Bicycle Resource Center (BRC). Over a 10 week comprehensive course participants learn the skills to become certified mechanic instructors and help run the BRC.
This program is much more than a training program for bicycle mechanics. The BRC not only provides immediate transportation solutions for hundreds of low-income people who would otherwise be stranded, but it serves as a springboard for our larger transit justice work. BRC University graduates know the ins and outs of community organizing as well as bicycle mechanics.
The program runs through 2 cycles each year. It is free for participants, but requires a dedication to our ideal’s and ongoing commitment to share the skills received with others through the BRC.
