I'm new to this community so hopefully I'm doing this right.
For a couple of months now I have been working as the operation manager of a non-profit community bike shop in Eastern Canada, and I was hoping to get some inspiration and ideas for putting up mechanic classes. I would be looking for any insights or examples of classes that you gave at your shops. I'm mostly wondering about the curriculum itself, like the "level" of the curriculum. Should I make a complete mechanic class that could almost get you a job (I have the training for it), or should I just keep it to the essentials? And what should I charge, if anything? Last thing, I'm curious what's your experience teaching kids under, say 15 or 16? Is it worth it or are they usually not interested enough?
