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 of Focused Community Strategies in the Historic South Atlanta. Youth from our neighborhood and surrounding areas, ages 8-18, can earn points 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 points our students acquire job readiness and leadership/management skills.

All donated bicycles we repair with the youth and are placed for sale and are available for purchase to our customers as well as the youth using their points.

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