Community Bike Works
April 5, 2012

I started volunteering two years ago by doing unicycle demonstrations. Since then I've started to help teach an Earn A Bike class. This month I've been approved to be a mentor. There are so many aspects to this program that it would be hard to list them all. The reading program, the student aprentices, and the outreach program that takes the Earn A Bike class directly to the schools. All of these programs give a child a chance to relate work to reward in a fun atmosphere. I may retire some day from my regular job but I don't think I'll ever retire from CBW.

Always rewarding when see a child respond.
