Edventure:Frome are looking for volunteer team members to help set up a community bike workshop in Frome. 

Volunteers will join the Edventure Start-Up Course which is a free, 10-week, hands on training in community entrepreneurship. Students will learn skills as they set up a community bicycle workshop aiming is to get more people on two wheels more often, to bring people together, to upskill people, cut carbon emissions, save land-fill waste and create meaningful employment opportunities. 

During this programme you will be guided through the basics of setting up a social enterprise, putting what you learn into practice. Your team will build a community around an idea, carry out research and design a business model based on this research. During the final part of the programme, you will be supported to create and carry out a project plan, turning the ideas into reality.

Other things you will have the opportunity to learn include fundraising, facilitation, giving presentations and organising events.

This programme begins on the 9th of March and runs for 10 weeks till the 14th of May. Attendees are expected to be at Edventure:Frome Mondays - Thursdays, 9.15 -2.45 pm. If you live elsewhere and want to attend, we can help to connect you to local people with spare rooms.
