Earn-A-Bike is our hands-on class for students ages 8-17 who can already ride a bike on their own. Over the course of six two-hour sessions with our dedicated instructors, students hone basic bike maintenance and safety skills. They earn a refurbished bike, lock, lights and helmet upon successful completion of the course.
Earn-A-Computer introduces young people to the inner workings and possibilities of computers and the internet — all while getting set to take home a refurbished computer (desktop/tower), monitor, keyboard, mouse, flash drive and network cable at the end of six class sessions. Like our other offerings, this free course is geared for students ages 8-17.
Learn-To-Ride courses, which are open to students ages 8-17, are focused on learning to get up on two wheels. St. Louis BWorks provides all needed materials and instructors to help students achieve this goal (e.g. loaner bikes, plus helmets to keep). After successful completion of this program, Learn-To-Ride students can go on, if they wish, to enroll in an Earn-A-Bike class (and then earn a bike).
Over the past calendar year, BWorks provided a total of 51 Earn-A-Bike, Learn-To-Ride and Earn-A-Computer multi-week courses to groups of local children. In 2023 we are continuing to grow our program offering, both at our headquarters in Soulard and in partnership with schools and other community organizations around the St. Louis region.
None of this would be possible without our dedicated volunteers, energetic staffers and generous donors.
