The DC Bike Academy is a Youth-Centered, Community-Based, Full-Service Bicycle Workshop, that helps young people discover the potential to transform themselves and their communities through the power of bikes.
Our innovative, hands-on programs provides youth with opportunities to engage in hands-on learning activities that combine critical thinking, practical skills, teamwork and mentoring. Youth learn the basics of bicycle repair, earn community service hours, work readiness skills and receive a bike for themselves to keep.
We are an organization of cyclists, educators, and community leaders who believe we can make a difference in the lives of our youth if we give them the right tools to succeed. WE ARE the community — government agencies, schools, non-profit organizations, volunteers, corporations, and parents, dedicated to providing exceptional programming for under-served Youth. WE ARE the DC Bike Academy.
We are not just using bicycles to help youth avert crisis. We use the science of cycling as a kinesthetic learning tool to help build better, stronger human beings.
The true connection is our commitment to the community. Spending time enriching our community is the greatest way to broaden our perceptions.
By immersing youth in a community and surrounding them with people who are dedicated to bettering the world, together we can learn so much about how the world works. We believe, youth gain a unique sense of purpose by serving those around them.
