4/4/2018 11:30:00 AM
Organization Name: Charlie’s FreeWheels
Program Name: Learn to Ride & Advanced Ride Program; Girls & Trans Build-a-Bike & Ride Programs
 
Kevin graduated from the Build a Bike program in summer 2017 and has been visiting Charlie’s FreeWheels regularly ever since!
 
Kevin has now built 3 bikes at Charlie’s FreeWheels through the Build-a-Bike program and our Drop-In Hours, and is also a regular participant of the Field Trips and rides supported by the MLSE Foundation. Kevin worked as a Peer Mechanic with Charlie’s FreeWheels in fall 2018 and has just been hired to work with Ya Bikes!, our bike shop partner, as a mechanic in 2018. We are so proud of Kevin and can’t wait to continue to work with him in 2018. Charlie’s FreeWheels continues to provide youth with access to free programs that enable youth to develop employable skills, and has been very successful with matching youth with bike shops and jobs across Toronto.
