Today's Hometown Live takes us to Houston's Third Ward where a project called Earn a Bike is empowering people of all ages but especially kids to give their time and earn transportation. The program is simple. Come in with a broken bike or no bike at all, and by giving your time and learning bike repair, you are rewarded with a bike that you helped to build.

This unique program has been around for seven years and is run by the non-profit organization Workshop Houston.
