Wednesday, February 9th, 7:00pm

Join us for a unique presentation that will highlight Bikes Not
Bombs’ Earn-A-Bike youth projects in the Island of Nevis and here in
This past summer, International Programs Director David Branigan
visited the Earn-A-Bike project in Nevis. David will show a short
film shot during his visit and discuss the strengths and challenges
of the program, the increased involvement of government agencies, and
the tremendous potential for the expansion in the next 2-3 years.
Youth Programs Coordinator Elijah Evans, who visited the Earn-A-Bike
Nevis project in 2009, will take a look into the historical,
political and cultural context of Nevis, and what the implications
are today. Elijah is also a graduate of the Earn-A-Bike program in
Boston, which he now oversees. Elijah will discuss the power of Earn-
A-Bike to impact young people, the connections between the Earn-A-
Bike programs in Nevis and Boston, and a vision for the future.
Finally, we’ll hear from a panel of Youth Instructors who have
graduated from BNB’s youth programs in Boston and now teach their
younger peers. These young people will share their personal
experiences with Earn-A-Bike and the program’s impact on their lives.
This event is free and open to the public. It is a potluck so please
consider bringing something to share. For more information, contact
