We are so excited to welcome a new cohort of interns for the upcoming Spring 2021! They are already hard at work learning how to fix flat tires, strip bikes down to the frame, and build bike racks.
Young adults in Littleton and surrounding areas, especially those from low socioeconomic families, lack stability, positive role models and employable skills to find, hold and contribute-in meaningful employment. Youth employment rates in our area are decreasing and youth suicide rates are rising.
We serve young adults (16-24) from low income families in the Littleton area that have not had success in traditional education and employment models by providing job skills training and mentorship that reveals their inherent self worth.

We are so grateful for each of our partnerships with the organizations listed below! Keep reading to learn more about what makes our interns unique.

Donate to Good Turn Cycles

Want to support these young individuals learn and grow to find meaningful employment? Consider donating to our job skills program!

Here’s the breakdown of where your money goes: 


General Fund: The general fund goes into the day-to-day functions of the nonprofit and will trickle down into the individual funds where money is needed. It also goes into hosting events like the mechanics course that support the overall mission of the non-profit.
Internship Materials Fund: This goes into paying for intern’s mechanics shirts, notebooks for them to take notes, bike tools, etc.
Mentorship Fund: Each intern has a mentor and gets mentoring time. During this time, the mentor gets to learn more about the intern, give them space to talk about work / home life conflicts, and build resumes. This money can go towards paying for gas to take interns mountain biking, taking interns to lunch, or taking them out for a fun event.
Paid Internship Fund: This money goes into sponsoring interns and paying their salaries as they work and learn bike mechanics. In the past some internships were unpaid volunteer positions, but as the need for paid experiences increases, we use this money to give them hourly pay.
