The Board of Directors
Our flagship chapter, Trips for Kids-Marin, has been in operation for 30 years and a vast network of chapters have sprung up organically since then throughout North America. In order to better serve our chapters and grow the movement to get more kids on bikes, the first step to create a national parent organization took place on August 1, 2017, under the guidance of a Marin Board of Directors subcommittee. As of June 2018, that subcommittee was sun-setted, and a new Trips for Kids national Board of Directors was formed. The brand new Board of Directors is listed below, and there are additional positions available:
Trips for Kids is looking for founding Board members!
If you have an interest in helping to enrich kids' lives through youth development programs that utilize the bicycle as a vehicle for positive change, please consider applying to join the new Trips for Kids national Board of Directors.
