At Roetz, we believe in second chances. For discarded bikes and for people with poor job prospects. The Roetz Fair Factory Foundation was established in 2016 to provide a learning environment where our mechanics feel comfortable and can thrive at their own pace.
The foundation finances various educational programs, such as secondary vocational education “Certified Bicycle Technician” at ROC-TOP in Amsterdam and a dedicated participation-mentor giving one-on-one guidance from day one until transfer to permanent job.
We want to inspire others to make a social impact. We give tours of the factory to governmental institutions, schools, start-ups and companies with a social and sustainable challenge. We make the Fair Factory available as inspiring location for workshops, events or excursions. We share our experiences and learnings over social entrepreneurship.
Everyone is welcome!
you can make a difference!
Join our ride and make a difference in the life of a person who deserved a second chance! Help us to increase the job prospects of the Roetz makers.
