Building Your Leaders, One Bicycle at a Time. Support Our Program

Our Mission. We operate a professional bicycle repair shop as a method of developing significant young leaders that bring a lasting positive change to the community.

South Atlanta Bike Shop is a non-profit youth development program in the Historic South Atlanta. Youth from our neighborhood and surrounding areas, ages 11-18, can earn “shop bucks” by working in the bike shop and spend these to purchase bicycles, bicycle accessories, replacement parts and pay for bike trip registration fees.
In the process of earning a bicycles they acquire job readiness and leadership/management skills.

The donated bicycles we repair with the kids and kids don’t choose to earn are placed for sale at affordable prices in our neighborhood thrift store: The South Atlanta Marketplace.

An important developmental component of our program is teen employment. At the moment we have two part-time teen employees working as assistant mechanics.
