Wednesday is a big day for Community BikeWorks at KidsPeace, as another round of participants will graduate from the program.
A ceremony is planned for 12:30 p.m. at Donley TEC on our Orchard Hills campus at 5300 KidsPeace Drive in North Whitehall Township. It's a chance for the graduates to share their experiences and be recognized for their dedication.
The children and teenagers have been hard at work since April, spending 20 hours of classroom time learning the nuances of bicycle safety and repair. As a reward, they each get a bike and helmet to take home with them when they leave KidsPeace’s residential program.
Community BikeWorks was started in Allentown by Stefan Goslawski as an effort to provide children an alternative to hanging on the streets. Rob Scott, supervisor of recreational facilities for , formed a partnership where staff took a course and brought their knowledge back to the children on campus.
This is the second graduating class.
