Building Bikes – Building Futures
Kids Bike Factory Mission – Empower and Challenge our Youth
Kids Bike Factory – This program will engage older youth and volunteers with the challenge of building a company, managed by kids, to refurbish and sell used bikes. The program exposes older youth to real world business processes and job readiness skills.
By engaging kids with hands-on learning in a real-world context, we will prepare them for the next steps on their paths to a career. As a part of the Kids Bike Factory, our goal is for a student to continue his or her education as:
- a clear and effective communicator
- a self-directed and lifelong learner
- a creative and practical problem solver
- a responsible and involved citizen
- an integrative and informed thinker.
