Be part of raising capital to provide practical mentoring programmes in Laverton for at-risk youth, where:
1. bike building skills will be attained;
2. bikes built by kids can be kept in return for increased school participation rates; and
3. self-sustaining community and social structures are developed for carrying on cycling activities.
Now in its third year, the Laverton cycling programme aims to build on the great success achieved in 2018, where 10 kids and relatives were positively affected by being involved in the dismantling, refurbishment, custom painting and re-assembly of bikes. Significant improvements were seen in school participation rates of most youths involved and their retention and enjoyment of the bikes that they built was a great source of community pride!
This year the aim is to run the bike building programme in concert with exploring with community leaders their ideas for how to create enduring social structures that can organise and host recreational cycling activities as an outlet for increased cycling opportunities and participation rates.
