You can focus you program to be a vocation program, or an out of school hour academic tutorial/ basic bike self sufficientcy / vocation program. Or you can have a bicycle education program that marries academic ideas with the bicycle to apply book learning to the students current lives. Math, Science, Language arts, History, Art, Health, PE, Home Economics, Shop, Ethics, Business, Finance, Community, Environment, Experiential education or any subject can be applied with the bicycle to make the learning more effective. 


When education is applied students have questions (they get personally involved and excited to learn more) Being involved makes the material useful in the future instead of forgotten. Minds that think verses memorizing material, do better on tests and evolve better as students in future academic subjects.


Get a student hungry for learning and they will eat up all they can explore, Stuff them concepts and they will puke out disconnected ideas that they can not apply to their future lives.


Yes we do have a few ideas on EB EAB programs

To me, "evidence based" sounds like a checklist or some other way to prove they gotten the education/mentoring they needed, whether it's bike mechanics, cycle-commuting safety, etc. No?

does that mean proof that they needed a bike or proof that the bike changed their life?
