Expand the After School Matters bicycle program.

Strategy 5.2.1 Details

Chapter 5Education: Education is a key component to achieving the Bike 2015 Plan's goals to increase the number of trips by bicycle and improve the safety of the bicycling environment. Many people think that bicycling in Chicago is dangerous. This concern keeps people from bicycling more, or at all. A key way to address this concern is through education, particularly through the six objectives identified in this chapter.
Objective 2Deliver bicycle education programs and campaigns to target audiences.

Strategy 1

Expand the After School Matters bicycle program.

After School Matters trains teenagers at Chicago schools in various fields, providing employment skills. A very successful sixteen-week apprentice program training 25 students in bicycle repair and safety was established in 2005.

Peformance MeasureEstablish a second After School Matters bicycle program in 2006.
Tracker NotesI believe there are now more than two After School Matters bicycle programs.
