About the YMEN Bike Box site:
The North Lawndale Bike Box is a community space and place where residents can borrow bikes (free of charge), fix bikes, and even purchase bikes to help mobilize the village toward healthy lifestyles and community transportation access. The NL Bike Box is a partnership of many community organizations and managed by both the Young Men's Educational Network and Working Bikes.
YMEN is a dynamic youth leadership organization in the North Lawndale Community on Chicago's West Side established in 1996 to address academic, social, and financial needs that cripple the futures of many young people in North Lawndale, particularly young men ages 10-18. YMEN’s comprehensive programs offer a range of educational support, long-term group mentoring, vocational/career classes, fine arts, entrepreneurship, and service learning to more than 300 students & their families annually.
