Hello all,

The Sacramento Bike Kitchen would like to ramp up our educational
offerings. The programs needs to be flexible yet structured and flexible to
accommodate potential volunteer scheduling/availability fluctuations.

I have been looking into the Park Tool Schools program as outlined in their
BB-4TG Instructor Guide. I am impressed with their offering and feel it
might fit our needs perfectly. We are thinking to first establish an
in-house mechanic training course which could be mandatory for new
volunteers and optional for current volunteer staff. We are 100% Volunteer
run. We would then open it up to the public. Tuition if any has yet to be

We would greatly appreciate any feed back from all of you if you have any
experience with Park Tool School or similar curriculum.

Secondly have any of you instituted a mandatory training for new
volunteers? If so, any observations and reflections would be welcomed.

Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated and we give many thanks to
you all. Keep up the the great work.

For The Sacramento Bike Kitchen,
Robert Christiansen
