From the outside, the Mission District’s Pedal Revolution may seem like any other bike shop — but inside big things are happening.

The nonprofit Pedal Revolution offers hands-on job opportunities for at-risk youth. Run by parent organization New Door Ventures, the shop provides life-changing work experiences that foster meaningful change through learning, mentorship and a supportive community.

We had the chance to spend the afternoon with Conrad, an up-and-coming bike mechanic. Pedal Revolution employs, trains and supports up to 15 at-risk youths like Conrad each year.

And for that, Mission Local is thankful!
