Our goal is to inspire and teach children and young adults the importance of having principles to build a better life. We hope to provide role models for the kids and give them a positive feeling of community in which to belong. The training tool that we have been using to achieve this goal has been refurbishing bikes. In addition to learning the different skills associated with maintaining a bike the participants also receive a bike after completion of the program. Among the many life principles that are taught in this process it also creates a sense of ownership and pride for bicycles. Nashville has many other programs that help get kids off the street and learn skills that can improve their life. In receiving a bike they can take advantage of these opportunities and in doing so brighten the future of the next generation.
