Bikes To Schools Program

Bikes to Youth” – YBP offers an opportunity for various area schools and other programs serving local youth to apply for a grant to receive refurbished used bikes, helmets, light sets, and locks to be donated to individuals enrolled in the school/program.  Applicants for this grant are also eligible and encouraged to apply for the Tools and Training grant as well.

Apply for the program by filling out the application form, and sending to austinyellowbike@gmail.com, attention Education Coordinator.  The collective will review the application at the next collective meeting, held on the first Tuesday of every month, and make a decision whether YBP has the resources to approve the application at this time.   The YBP Education Coordinator will then inform the applicant of the collective’s decision.

Once approved, the YBP Education Coordinator will invite the grant recipients to the next collective meeting to receive the grant and/or arrange for delivery of items that can’t be picked up at that time.   Grant recipients are encouraged to seek ongoing support by attending YBP shops as needed.
