COMMITTED PROJECT AVENIR



Atelier de réparation de vélos


Three years ago, when Jean-François Paquette, a teacher at Saint-Jean-Baptiste high school, noticed that a lot of students didn’t own a bike to get around, he decided to remedy the situation. To do so, he set up a bike repair shop with the help of a small group of young people with the goal of refurbishing abandoned bicycles and then giving them to students from less fortunate families. After finding just a few bikes here there and everywhere at the beginning, the crew started forging ties with public partners, which enabled them to get their hands on a greater number of bikes. Although they only managed to recondition and donate a few bikes the first year, Mr. Paquette and his team of young volunteers gave away 44 bicycles free of charge last year, thereby providing students with an active means of transport that helps them stay in shape.
