Community Service Projects

  • Interested?

    If you or your group would like to arrange a community service project with us, please send us an email.

Community Service Projects offer groups a way to get involved with Neighborhood Bike Works and make a lasting impact on our organization. We typically have worked with high school seniors who intern with us to complete their graduation requirements, corporate groups who want to participate in team-building activities, and college student organizations that are eager to help and learn from local community resources. 

High School Students

NBW has hosted many interns from Mastery Charter School, Science Leadership Academy, and Upper Darby High School, as well as smaller numbers of interns from other schools. Projects include assisting instructors with classes, helping to manage rides, office work, and shop improvements. We strongly prefer students who have completed one of our entry level after-school programs--Earn-A-Bike, Ride Club, or Summer Camp--as these classes have prepared students with the valuable training and knowledge needed to teach others bicycle repair and safety. 

MLK Day of Service

Each year, to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr., Neighborhood Bike Works participates in this national day of service. For the last several years, we have been fortunate to have many volunteers, supporters, and groups such as REI and Vanguard, come out to help us with some major shop projects. Thanks to their help, we have been able to give our shops some major face lifts!

Please reach out directly if you are interested in arranging a service project for your corporate group, student organization or other association. Potential activities include building bikes, organizing bike drives, and participating in monthly Shape Up the Shop events where we bring our youth and volunteers together to...you guessed it...shape up the bike shop!

If you or your group would like to arrange a community service project with us, please send us an email.
