Bike Works, based in SE Seattle since 1996, promotes the bicycle as a vehicle for change to empower youth and build resilient communities. Our programs and services invest in young people and encourage bicycling through a community of adult volunteers. Our programs include Earn-a-Bike and weekly riding programs for youth, job readiness training, summer bike camps, a community bike shop, bike giveaway programs for youth and adults with limited resources, as well adult classes and weekly volunteer opportunities. Our bike shop serves a large customer base with used bike sales, affordable repairs, and new and used parts and accessories. Each year over 1,500 youth participate in our programs and gain the skills and resources they need to translate lessons about confidence and leadership into their own lives. We also take in over 6,000 bicycle donations annually and redistribute these bikes to youth and adults in Seattle and beyond through our programs and bike shop. We are committed to continued learning and improvement, with a focus on social justice and racial equity. We value and seek diverse team members who are passionate, innovative, collaborative, professional, fun, responsible, and solutions-oriented.
