We're excited to announce: the Earn-A-Bike program!
This course is an after school program for youth, designed to offer students the fundamentals of complete bike maintenance and repair. Students will choose a donated bicycle that they will overhaul with staff and volunteers support, instruction, and guidance. Students will also receive safe riding skills instruction and more about biking in general. In addition to mechanic skills the students will gain exposure to STEM skills that can provide insight to a variety of career pathways. Upon completion of the course students will be able to take their bikes home along with a lock and a helmet. Students will also gain confidence in their new skills as well as a sense of accomplishment in completing the course.
