While we will always offer mobile based programming (link) throughout central Indiana, we also work with youth in a multipurpose programming space located in our headquarter facility (link) in the Near Northwest neighborhoods.
This classroom is primarily used for our Kids Building Bikes program that introduces STEM concepts, teaches mechanical aptitude as well as a wide array of other transferrable employability skills such as problem solving, self-confidence, perseverance, and teamwork. Graduates of this program will not only develop these essential skills but also earn a brand-new bike, set of tools, helmet, and lock.
When not in use for our programming, the classroom is converted into meeting space and used by our partners (link) and other neighborhood organizations who are dedicated to making Indianapolis better. This multipurpose design allows this space to far more than a classroom. Rather, this design allows the space to be a tool for the neighborhood and its’ leaders to help create positive and lasting impact.
Whether used to teach youth through the power of the bicycle (link) or by community leaders coming together to exchange ideas, this space is an investment designed to facilitate ongoing efforts to create positive and lasting impacts to our neighborhood.
