BBP is seeking a Shifting Gears Coordinator to lead our programming
partnership with the Idaho Department of Corrections.

Reports to: Executive Director

In 2017, BBP created Shifting Gears, a groundbreaking program to teach
incarcerated women how to fix kids' bicycles while earning a bicycle for
future transportation needs.

In 2020, BBP secured grant funding to expand Shifting Gears to the Idaho
Department of Corrections men’s facilities. This program is called Project
Kickstand and lives under the umbrella of Shifting Gears programming.
Because men incarcerated at this facility generally serve much longer
sentences than the women in our Shifting Gears program, there is a new
