What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Youth Bike Education and Empowerment Program (YBEEP)

Through our Youth Bike Education & Empowerment Program (YBEEP), NBW offers over 1,400 hours of tiered programming each year that instills confidence, inspires adventure, and builds skills for future success. YBEEP provides youth, ages 8-18, with a full array of offerings from entry-level classes to advanced job and leadership training opportunities.

Youth enter our YBEEP through Earn-A-Bike and Ride Club. In these multi-week classes, they can keep a bike that they refurbish themselves and explore Philly’s greenspaces. Both classes develop goal-setting and problem-solving skills, and expand horizons. Once they complete an entry-level class, youth can participate in Monthly Group Rides (to landmarks and greenspaces) and weekly Drop-In Repair Clinics. Older youth can take our Leadership & Advanced Mechanics Course, and then apply for paid employment positions as assistant instructors, bike safety ambassadors, or mechanics apprentices. Through these paid positions, teenagers gain valuable job and leadership experience, and become mentors to younger participants in our programs.

Need to use tools? Want to figure out how to adjust your brakes? Already know how to do everything, but you can’t fit a whole stand in your tiny urban apartment? You’re in luck! Our incredibly successful repair co-op has everything you need to get the job done. The Adult Repair Co-op is staffed by volunteer facilitators who have the knowledge you need to get your bike fixed and on the road again.

You can also purchase used bikes in as-is condition. All income from bicycle & parts sales benefits our youth education programming. Stop by to check out our selection.

Population(s) Served

Our Basic Bicycle Repair course for adults is a great way to begin learning how to repair and maintain your bike yourself, or to brush up on rusty repair skills. The class meets weekly for a month. Lessons typically include: flat repair, parts of the bike and bike fit, care and feeding of your brakes, shifting, and an introduction to overhauling bearings. More advanced procedures can be covered on request. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bikes and friends.
