Our Youth programs are rooted in the belief that young people thrive when they are valued, when they value themselves, and when they feel a sense of belonging. They are designed to engage youth in technical bike repair instruction and riding opportunities, which open doors to healthy development, active lifestyles, civic engagement, social justice advocacy, and environmental stewardship.
Current Youth Opportunities At bike works
What are drop ins?
Participants will practice their bike repair skills, earn community service hours, have access to our stands & tools to occasionally work on their own projects, and have progressive opportunities to teach and mentor as they engage. Come to learn new mechanic skills, practice old skills, work towards earning a bike or parts for a bike, or just say what’s up and hangout! As in our Earn-A-Bike program, youth are rewarded for their hard work by earning bikes and parts as they log more hours.
