Core Values

Young Adult Driven: Bike & Build unlocks the potential of young adults to do incredible things. Our participants are the face of our organization, and the driving force behind all that we strive to accomplish. Through engaging young adults as active agents and ambassadors for affordable housing efforts, Bike & Build enables them to test their limits, become engaged and active citizens, and impact the housing landscape.

Safety: We acknowledge the inherent risk associated with cycling long distances, and prioritize our participants’ health and safety above all else. The well-being of our participants is always our first consideration, and we encourage a culture of constant learning in safety practices before, during, and after our programs.

Empowerment: We aim to instill a sense of empowerment among all of our participants by offering them the opportunity to accomplish big things and tackle big problems.

Integrity: We always aim to do what is right for our participants, our donors, and affordable housing partners. Bike & Build values integrity, transparency, and honesty among all of our constituents.

Fun: We like to have fun, and aim to build a culture and organization where we all have a good time while helping others.
