JOIN THE RIDE. PROPEL A LIFE.
The Village Flyers Bike Club is…
FUN & ENGAGING. Mentor-mentee pairs get together for regular bike rides. This ongoing interaction develops connection between under-served youth and the community.
HEALTHFUL. Kids experience movement and activity as part of a healthy lifestyle – developing beneficial habits.
NURTURING. Mentors’ interaction, activity and guidance instill positive growth and leadership skills in mentees.
EMPOWERING. The bike club teaches goal setting and responsibility. Kids can earn bicycle ownership through consistent participation and commitment.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
BE A MENTOR
YOU can steer youth to a bright future! Sign up to be a mentor by contacting The Village Group at (843) 240-0534. You will receive guidance and training before being matched with a child through a defined mentor-matching program. All you need is the desire to inspire youth by example and a small commitment of time to the weekly club rides.
