Bike Monkeys joins kids (10-17 years old) with adults to learn how to rebuild discarded bicycles during structured lessons. All participants work on the same bike system at the same time, alongside their assigned adult mentor. Participants commit to a two and a half hour session each week for two months. During their commitment to the program, each young person learns bicycle repair skills, shop maintenance and safety habits, and community service concepts, alongside caring adults and teens.
This program blends the foundation of mentoring with technical skill development. Youth involved improve their social and learning skills, develop a clearer sense of their goals, and know they have adults committed to their success. This program requires registration.
