What We Do
Since 2008, DreamBikes has:
• Refurbished and returned over 15,000 used bikes to the community
• Provided jobs for over 100 teens, sparking transformational experiences
• Served a diverse audience who now see the world from a bicycle seat
DreamBikes is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that strategically places used bicycle stores in low-to-moderate income neighborhoods to provide hands-on, paid job training to teens. Working in conjunction with local youth organizations, DreamBikes employs teens from the area to work in the store; teaching them how to refurbish bicycles, use the POS software, and to deliver great customer service. DreamBikes provides lifelong skills to our teen employees, helping them to shift gears and find a bright future.
We provide young people work experience, open up future job opportunities and to make a difference in their lives, we refurbish used bicycles and return them to the community. We believe these things make our community stronger.
Changing kids lives one bike at a time.
DreamBikes envisions a world where everyone has access to economic opportunities, regardless of zip code. And where bicycles shift communities forward, provide both recreation and transportation; empowering individuals and entire neighborhoods.
