Beginning on March 7, 2016, five students from the Seneca Street CDC After School/Team Programs enrolled in a Recyle-A-Bike Program partnered with GoBike Buffalo.
For twice a week for six weeks, the students learned how to deconstruct and rebuild a bike. This provided them with the skills to fix their own bike if they should ever need repairs.
At the end of the program, the students kept their bikes and received a bike lock, helmet and bike lights.
The lessons they received coordinated with Common Core Curriculum, connecting their schoolwork to practical skills.
The Recycle-A-Bike program was held again in the Summer @ Seneca in 2016 with a new set of excited and eager students.
