During the school year, Southeast Conservation Corps manages an after-school mountain bike program for teens ages 12 to 15. This five-month program engages youth in two monthly mountain bike rides and one monthly conservation service project. Within this program, participants will learn a conservation ethic, fortitude and tangible skills through the enjoyment of riding a bike. Upon successful completion of this program, participants will earn a new or gently used bike and be encouraged to return the following season as peer leaders.
