  • Interested?

    To sign up, parents/guardians need to fill out an NBW Youth Application Waiver. You can download one here or visit our West Philly Shop to pick one up today! Classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis.


Earn-A-Bike is our popular flagship program. Over the course of 16 classes, youth learn the basics of bike repair and maintenance, safe urban riding, and health and nutrition while refurbishing an abandoned bike. Students earn the very bikes they learn to repair by participating in the classes and thereby collecting credit we call hours. All graduates of the Earn-A-Bike program can continue to work in the shop, earning hours they can trade for more bikes, parts, and accessories, as well as participate in our many other more advanced programs. These programs are free to the participants, ages 8-18, as all costs are covered by Neighborhood Bike Works and partner organizations.
