Fix-It Workshop






Next Fix-It Workshops:


Nov 21 & Dec 19,
9:30 am-1:30 pm 

Athens Public Library

At our community Fix-It Workshops, volunteer fixers help other community members fix their non-functioning belongings including electronics, computers, small appliances, battery-operated toys, mechanical items and more. 



ARE YOU A FIXER? 

PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A VOLUNTEER FIXING COACH

Fix-It Workshops begin with volunteer Fixing Coaches who are willing to devote some of their time and talent to make a big impact on their community. 

We need more volunteer fixers!  If you are interested in helping out, please click HERE 


DO YOU NEED A FIX?

If you need assistance fixing something in your home, a Fix-It Workshop may be able to assist you. We do our best to match community members with our talented volunteers who will teach you how to give your item a second life! 

  

WILL YOU GET A FIX?

There is no guarantee that your item(s) can be repaired at our workshops, but the great examples we have learned from have achieved a repair success rate of almost 70 percent.  Our Fixing Coaches can help you figure out what is wrong with your item(s) and if repair is feasible.  Sometimes we will be able to help you fix your item(s).  Sometimes we may need to order a part(s) and complete your fix at the next workshop.  Sometimes we will tell you that your item(s) cannot be fixed.

 

IS THIS A FREE REPAIR SERVICE?

 Yes and No.  There is no fee for people to get help at a Fix-It Workshop, but this is not a free drop-off repair service.  These workshops are for people who want to learn how their stuff works and are willing to play an active role in learning diagnosis and repair.  ReUse Industries and Fixing Coaches will provide guidance, tools and some supplies.  You provide your time to help diagnose and hopefully fix your own belongings, with guidance.  If parts are needed, we can help obtain them but you will need to purchase them.

WHEN ARE FIX-IT WORKSHOPS HELD?

 Fix-It Workshops will be held periodically based on community demand and the availability of volunteer Fixing Coaches. 

 Our first workshops are scheduled for:

Saturday, November 21st, 9:30 am-1:30 pm

30 Home Street, Athens, OH 45701

and

Saturday, December 19, 9:30 am-1:30 pm
