Neighborhood Bike Works offers young people the opportunity to intern with our programs, completing community service hours while they learn valuable bicycle repair and bike safety skills and also gain experience teaching younger children. 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, bike donation solicitation, and shop improvements.
Youth also perform community service at NBW through the District Attorney’s Youth Aid Panel Program, a volunteer-run project that places first-time offenders in community service projects as an alternative to being charged with non-violent offenses. 80% of Youth Aid participants are not arrested again during high school.
MLK Day of Service 2012
Thank you to volunteers and youth who came out to help us clean up and refresh the shops for the new year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! We had a ton of volunteers come out to all four locations, and the shops are looking great. We appreciate the support and help and look forward to seeing you soon!
