A BICYCLE INDUSTRY WORK EXPERIENCE AND MORE

Our Work Experience is where the action is. Some kids get a taste because they needed community service or earned a bike. Other youth do the program for Credit through partnerships at local schools & facilities. Then, a rare few just do it for fun. Whatever way you start, our hope is that you come back and continue. We enjoy working on bikes with everyone, but we find much more value in helping them address and pursue the bigger things in life.

WRENCH FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE

Need some service hours? Whether you got in trouble or not, we would love to teach you how to fix bikes. Some we give away, and some we flip to run our program.

WRENCH FOR CREDIT

We are striving to provide the most realistic bike shop work experience possible. Youth won't just be fixing bikes though. There is much more to a small business than that. Once youth develope fundamental repair skills they could end up doing marketing, accounting, retail and more.

WRENCH FOR CASH

Qualifying youth have the opportunity to earn cold hard cash. Through our partnership with the local Worksource, youth with a diploma or GED can get payed for up to 3 months of full time work.
