After School Programs

YBP works with various schools in the Austin ISD to develop riding, mechanics, and leadership skills for youth.  We have worked with Citizen Schools to co-coordinate programs for students at Kealing and Bedichek Middle Schools, and are planning to work with our neighbors at Simms Elementary to provide after-school programs at our Webberville Shop.  These programs help students learn basic bike mechanics and safe riding skills.  The students keep repair diaries that will be turned into a small bike repair manual that they can give to their peers when the semester ends. There is also a bike safety rodeo where students from the class can check and adjust their peer’s bikes. (Fall 2006 | Newsletter: 2006-09, 2006-10, 2006-11, 2006-12)
