FreeWheels for Kids is a Kansas City, Kansas organization that exists to get more kids on bikes more often and more safely. The program is designed to promote leadership, healthy living, volunteerism, citizenship and mobility for youth 6-18.
The mainstay of the program is the Earn-a-Bike curriculum, based on the model of the Transportation Alternatives program Recycle-a-Bicycle. After six weeks of mechanic and riding classes, 15 new graduates ages 12-18 give the bikes they've repaired to children ages 6-11 to earn their own refurbished bike.
FreeWheels for Kids holds periodic bike drives to collect donated bikes. For information on the next drive, please contact Freewheelsforkids@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
