CHAPTER SPOTLIGHT: Bulldog Rider's Leader Collaborates with Youth

Shown in this photo are youth participants from our Trips For Kids Bulldog Riders from Redwood City, CA and some of their adult supporters who met together last week to plan their 6th Annual North Fair Oaks bike rodeo.

Asking children to share their voices and ideas makes them feel like essential contributors during the planning process. It also make them more likely to participate in the activity they helped plan.

In his article Youth Fitness and Why It Matters, Trips for Kids Bulldog Rider's chapter director, Rafael Avendano shared "It is important to always look for new ways to engage, motivate and inspire youth."

Trips for Kids Bulldog Riders are sponsored by Siena Youth Center of the St. Francis Center.

Do you brainstorm with your youth on programs and events? If so share, share with us how you work with your youth so you can inspire other chapter leaders. Email your suggestions to Amy
