Kids Building Bikes is an immersive, hands-on learning experience for youth in grades 4-8 where students have an opportunity to earn their very own bicycle, helmet, lock, & tools. Program participants will complete 16 hours of training focused on attaining mechanical competence and a greater sense of independence as well as improving problem solving skills, perseverance, & self-confidence
2021 Program Dates
Fall Session I:4th, 5th, & 6th grade November 1 – December 1 on Monday & Wednesday 5pm – 7pm
More sessions coming soon in 2022…
These programs will take place in the Building Bikes Lab located in our facility at 29th and the Canal. Facility address: 1271 W 29th St, Indianapolis, IN 46208.
While the value of our training and the equipment that successful graduates will earn upon completion of the program is $750, we understand that cost can be a barrier to families, and don’t want that to be a reason a child can’t participate. Thanks to individual donors and funding partners, we have scholarships available as we strive to eliminate financial access as a barrier of entry.
The cost to our program participants is $150. Scholarships are available to those that qualify and the maximum scholarship amount reduces the program cost down to $20 per student. Additionally, multiple children from the same family are eligible for a discounted rate.
