This August, Austin’s local radio stations KUT/KUTX selected us to be the nonprofit featured in the Get Involved Spotlight! By promoting our mission and services and asking for help from new volunteers, we are able to more easily let Austin know how its citizens can get directly involved with their community.
KUT joined us during one of our Turner Roberts Bike Rodeos to film us in action serving the local community as well as to get interview material for their website.
Our core clients are are low-income, at-risk students to whom we provide semester-long, after-school Bike Clubs, a free Youth Bike Shop and Earn-A-Bike program, Bicycle Rodeos, and maintenance and safety clinics. Since 2013 we have served over 8,000 youth participants via Bike Clubs and Earn-A-Bike programs and another 5,000+ through Bike Rodeos at over 30 sites across Austin.
