Trips for Kids® Chattanooga is a unique after-school mountain bike program for local youth. This program is offered during the school year and works in partnership with area schools and non-profit organizations.
Trips for Kids® Chattanooga uses a progressive skills-based approach to engage and mentor youth within the region. This program provides a recreational experience in nature to communities of youth who are normally bound by the limits of their neighborhood streets. This program facilitates weekly group rides with trained and passionate mentors who teach a combination of skills related to mountain biking, group dynamics, team building, and environmental stewardship. Within a TFK® season youth strengthen valuable life skills such as commitment, fortitude, and resiliency, all through the simple enjoyment of riding a bicycle.
Southeast Conservation Corps has partnered with Bonfire.com to raise funds in support of the 2019 and 2020 Trips for Kids® program. Follow this link to check out the awesome, and super soft, Bike Chatt shirts and support Trips for Kids®!
