Building Bikes – Building Futures

Kids Bike Factory Mission – Empower and Challenge our Youth

bike factory logoKids 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:

  1. a clear and effective communicator
  2. a self-directed and lifelong learner
  3. a creative and practical problem solver
  4. a responsible and involved citizen
  5. an integrative and informed thinker.
