Charlie's FreeWheels is a youth-focused non-profit cycling organization working in the Moss Park and Regent Park neighbourhoods to empower youth through bicycle education. The core of their programming is the Build-A-Bike program, teaching young folks from ages 12 - 25 how to build their own bike from the frame up. I completed the program in 2018 and built my bike there, along with receiving additional bike mechanic training. I worked there as the Communications Lead, working on their social media, website, newsletter, shop, posters and print work, teaching curriculum, and photography from May 2021 til September 2022. I also assisted with classes, mobile repair events, open shop hours, and group rides.
Here are three t-shirt designs I created during my time there!
