Open Roads is a nonprofit organization with an important mission: We teach youth bike mechanic skills and social skills in order to better prepare them for their future. We are most pleased you are interested in applying for this position. We are a growing organization and we aim to bring high energy people to the table.

Our Guiding Principles:
1. Fantastic Programs
We need to create programs, classes, and workshops that are fantastic. This means all of these events should be engaging, challenging, safe, and fun.

Whether you are young or old or somewhere in between, we all need to keep learning and growing. We want this for our participants, our staff, and our volunteers.
3. Balance of Skills
Understanding a bike, how to use tools, and the technical aspects or repair is critical. However, it is just as important to understand people, how to work well with them, and the human aspects of work, play, and relationships.
4. Strong Relationships
Successful working relationships are an essential component to our health and success as an organization.
5. Building a Better Bike Culture
We believe that bicycles are an important part of a vibrant community. They are not only an essential part of a healthy environment, but riding is a great way to stay active, healthy, and strong.
