Six Cycle is a program designed for teens that focuses on character and bike building.
In the Fall of 2016 Village Wrench kicked off its inaugural Six Cycle teen bicycle mechanic program. Six Cycle is a character and bike building program that empowers teenagers to completely rebuild a bicycle with the help of a Village Wrench mentor. During the six week session, mentor mechanics work with the teens in training to cover every part on their bikes from bottom brackets to derailleurs to re-wiring brake cables. Part of the curriculum covers key characteristics that are essential for success in life such as curiosity, gratitude, grit, social intelligence, etc. A curriculum overview can be seen here.
Bonus! Graduates also become eligible to apply for a paid part-time position in our Workshop. If you know a teen who might be interested in this learning experience, Village Wrench is currently searching for middle/high school students for our next sessions of Six Cycle.
