The Boise Bicycle Project (BBP) is a non-profit bicycle cooperative that creates opportunities for empowerment, education, and social change through bicycles and bicycle repair. As nonprofit, we repair bicycles donated from the community and redistribute them through our charitable programs and affordable bike sales. As a cooperative, we teach the community how to repair their own bicycles in our shared use shop space. Our charitable programs seek to make bicycles, and bicycle repair/safety education available to the entire community regardless of income.
BBP’s many charitable programs are made possible by its community oriented shop operations. The shop operations manager’s job is to keep BBP’s dynamic shop operations beneficial and sustainable in the community, while generating income to fund BBP’s charitable programs.
