The Good Karma Bikes College Opportunity and Outreach Program works with former foster and other disadvantaged youth, ages 18-26. Young adults attend the two-year Good Karma program learning bicycle mechanics, customer service, sales, and e-commerce skills before working part-time in the shop. While in college, they become peer-mentors to a new group of participants. In 2015, Supervisor Simitian led efforts to increase funding which allowed Good Karma Bikes to double the size of their small but effective program.
