Boise Bicycle Project

What does it take to rehabilitate a person in prison? In Boise, the answer involves broken bikes, children in need and incarcerated women. Meet Jimmy Hallyburton, executive director and co-founder of the Boise Bicycle Project. Formed in 2007, the Boise Bicycle Project has had a profound impact on the greater-Boise community. One of its marquee programs is Shifting Gears, a rehabilitation program that encourages incarcerated women to repair bikes for local children in need. It's not only an emotional endeavor, but a new way to address rehabilitation for inmates. Watch as we dive into the program, from fixing bikes to the big bike giveaway.

If you have the ability to make your community better for yourself and everyone living in it, why wouldn’t you want to be part of that?

Check out the warming story, and see how the program is shaping the community.
