On Ya Bike Program

gray concrete bridge

A project that puts young people in the rider’s seat – restoring bicycles at our Youth Centre.

We’re hunting for volunteer mentors and young people to help with all aspects of project coordination and mechanic skills.

Bikes will be reclaimed from donations and from Council’s Minnamurra Waste & Recycling Depot. They’ll be revamped, and donated or sold back to the community.

Expected outcomes for young people are:

  • improved personal well-being
  • increased self-determination
  • commitment to sustainability practices
  • access to transport
  • increased social connection.


If you can volunteer as a mentor or are a young person who wishes to participate, contact Mel on (02) 4233 1276 or email melissaa@kiama.nsw.gov.au.
