International Bicycle Donations

Olds College International Searching for Bicycle Donations

This June, Olds College will be welcoming roughly 30 students from Mexico as part of the Proyecta 10,000 program. The program will see a mix of undergraduate students, researchers, and instructors come to Olds to learn more about Canada, study the English language, and more. This will be the second year that Proyecta 10,000 will send students to Olds College.

Last year, students were enthusiastic to see the community, but experienced limited transportation options in Olds as they could not afford to rent cars. We hope that members of the community will generously donate or loan their unused bicycles so these students can better experience the community of Olds. Bicycles in need of minor repairs will be repaired at no cost by volunteers.

In addition to learning English, the students will have a variety of off-campus field trips around the province so they can experience the Canadian environment and learn about Canadian culture.

If you would like to contribute a bicycle for this cause, please email international@oldscollege.ca or call 403.556.4681.
