What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Street Level Cycles

Street Level Cycles combines a full-service community bicycle shop with a youth education program. During our afterschool program, youth interns learn professional bike repair and customer service refurbishing used bicycles. They then exercise that knowledge during our free Open Shop hours, where they help community members learn to repair their bicycles. This program also provides participants with training and experience in customer service, as well as helps develop problem solving, troubleshooting, and mechanics skills.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth

Berkeley Boathouse fills the void left by the loss of nearly all woodworking programs in local high schools. Youth work alongside our skilled instructors in an apprenticeship-style setting learning woodworking and boat building. Youth interns take the boats that they have built out on our neighboring estuary. For over 50% of the youth we serve, this is their first time in a boat. On weekends, youth interns provide boat rentals for the general public, helping patrons with paperwork and providing rowing instruction—experiences that give them valuable training in outdoor education and customer service. This program provides participants with the basic skills needed for any construction or carpentry trade.
