Elijah Evans

Executive Director, Bikes Not Bombs

Elijah is a testament to the leadership development pathways created at Bikes Not Bombs (BNB), having started at age 14 as an Earn-A-Bike participant, then going on to become the Coordinator and then Director of Youth Programs, and most recently serving as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors. Elijah returns to lead the organization after becoming a teacher through Teach for America (TFA) — spending three years in the classroom and managing operations at TFA’s new teacher institute.

Elijah studied African American history and Spanish linguistics at the University of Massachusetts and has a Certificate in Nonprofit Management and Leadership from Boston University’s Questrom School of Business; he is also a musician, bike mechanic, and avid cyclist.
