News & Announcements

Gearin' Up Bicycle Program comes to Jefferson Academy!!

The Gearin’ Up Bicycles will be providing a six-week Earn A Bike Program that teaches essential bike repair skills to students. The program commences with students selecting a used bike to refurbish. Each week, participants learn about a part of the bicycle (brakes, tires, shifters, etc.) and how to make necessary repairs to their own bicycle. At the conclusion of the program, participants take home their newly refurbished bicycle as well as many lifelong skills.
Additionally; students that complete the six-week program will become Jr. bike mechanics with the Gearin Up Bicycles “Pop-Up Shop.” The Pop-Up Shop will allow students the opportunity to conduct minor bike repairs in the community; under the supervision of Gearin Up Bicycles program staff. The program will conclude with a program closing ceremony and a one-time Pop-Up Shop which will be held on June 10th from 3:00-6:00pm. DCPS permission slips will be issued for parental signature.

Get your application here! This will be a wonderful experience for our students! This program starts on April 22, 2016.
