WHAT WE DO
Young people come to BYKE to learn mechanics and fix bicycles. We have a comprehensive, STEM based curriculum, including one-on-one guidance from Mechanic Mentors.When youth come to BYKE the can fix their own bicycles, or earn credit for parts/bikes by helping others, helping the shop, or focused learning. Youth facilitate meetings everyday to discuss goals, accomplishments and frustrations, as well as issues faced inside and outside the shop. We encourage ownership, accountability and appreciation. Using restorative justice practices, BYKE strives to tackle school-to-prison 'landslide' and violence prevention.
