What does it mean to be a Fix-It Partner?
The City of Austin would like to partner with individuals and community groups to make repair education and Fix-It more readily available throughout Austin.

Who can become a Partner?
If you live in the Austin area and are interested in hosting your own Fix-It Clinic, you are eligable to become a Fix-It Partner! We are especially excited about building partnerships with reuse centers, nonprofits, religious organizations, schools and PTAs, neighborhood associations, and businesses, but anyone who wants to host a clinic is eligable to become a Fix-It Partner!
What are the benefits of being a Partner?

Aid with advertising: Partners will be able to post their events on Austin Resource Recovery's Community Fix-It Calendar.
Files and forms: Once confirmed as a Partner, Fix-It hosts will receive a ZIP file of printer-ready waivers, table signs, flyers, data logs and sample email templates to use when contacting your attendees.
How do I become a Fix-It Partner?
To inquire about becoming a partner, email Austin Resource Recovery at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your preferred contact informatioin, and let us know you're interested in becoming a Fix-It Partner! We'll set up time for a quick meeting to go over the partnership, and once you sign our Fix-It Austin Partner Form, you'll be ready to go!
What are the requirements for being a Partner?
Share your successes with us! Partners need to share data from their event on the number of attendees and the pounds kept out of the landfill through repair.
Help us all get better: Partners will have attendees at their event fill out an online exit survey about their experience at the clinic.
Follow our branding guidlines: We'll happily provide you a copy of the Fix-It Austin logo to use, but use of the City seal or ARR logo is not allowed by Fix-It Partners. We'll also ask that you refer to your event as a Fix-It Austin Partner event. Partners should not represent their clinics as official City of Austin events.
