September 9, 2013 – Working Bikes and Growing Power

The Milwaukee-based nonprofit Growing Power noted its partnership with Working Bikes as one of the highlights of 2013 in its year in review, writing:

“A new partnership with Working Bikes, a Chicago based non-profit, was launched to teach our teens bicycle repair and safety.  Teens learned how to fix-up salvaged bikes, how to safely navigate city streets, and how to transport produce via bike cart.  More than 200 teens were certified through this program.”
