Volunteers of the Month - Taiwanese American Professionals

What a great bunch of volunteers! Jessica Ken and her horde of 20 volunteers from the Taiwanese American Professionals group descended on our humble facility once again to help us fix bikes. They volunteer twice a year as part of their commitment to community service. “TAP has been around forever,” she remarked, with a commitment to professional development, community service, and building community. They also like having fun, and helping us with bike fixing fits right in with their program.
Jessica says that some of her members were intimidated at first but our volunteer mentors proved to be very helpful and made everything easier for them, guiding them through whatever repair they were attempting, Many of her members liked it enough to come back repeatedly, and some even have been volunteering with us on a regular basis, citing their sense of accomplishment after a job well done as a great motivator.
