‘Trips For Kids’ Builds A Better Life!

Trips For Kids has opened the world of cycling to over 140,500 at-risk kids! Operating in the United States, Canada, Israel and Sierra Leone since 1988, Trips for Kids® (TFK®) helps at-risk kids heal and grow through mountain bike rides and Earn-A-Bike programs. Their over 85 Trips for Kids chapters combine lessons in confidence building, achievement and environmental awareness through the development of practical skills, and the simple act of having fun.

Kids are taught how to fix bikes and earn money so they can buy their own bikes. Through mentoring and guidance, these kids learn how to overcome obstacles and learn valuable skills. Like these bikes that would have been otherwise ‘tossed away,’ these kids are earning self worth and rebuilding their lives!
