BENEFITING: LEAVE NO VETERAN BEHIND
Leave No Veteran Behind is a nonprofit that leverages Veteran talent to take on our nation's most pressing issue--youth disinvestment. Our team of military Veterans are teaching Chicago teens Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through bicycle remanufacturing.
For our latest project, we are turning vintage Chicago Schwinn bicycles into state-of-the-art (and state-of-the-science) smartbikes. These bikes will not only provide a great vehicle for travel, but provide our youth and Veterans great experience learning about high-end manufacturing techniques so that they are able to transition into long term employment. We need your help to make this happen.
We've just completed our first prototype, and our goal is to build ten bikes in 2015 and auction them off to support future bike building. With your help, our youth and Veterans will be taught a STEM curriculum that will allow them to compete for the jobs of the future and close our nation's skills gap. Please support us in this great cause so that you can share in their longterm success!
