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. 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).
As of fall 2022, BWorks is on track to have provided a startling total of 51 Earn-A-Bike, Learn-To-Ride and Earn-A-Computer multi-week courses to groups of local children this calendar year!
We’ve also added additional free opportunities for students-turned-alumni, with adventure bike rides taking us everywhere from the River Des Peres trail to Forest Park to the St. Louis riverfront this year, as well as extra practice sessions for recent alumni still eager to gain some more confidence on two wheels.
This growth would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers, energetic staffers and generous donors. We’re also grateful to the fantastic local community organizations we’ve been partnering with to reach even more young people in our region: local schools, the city parks department, the Urban League, Thomas Dunn Learning Center, Vitendo4Africa, the Girls & Boys Club, Claver House and more.
