Description: 

The Southeast Youth Corps will be hosting the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers on Saturday, April 19th to offer a mountain biking + Leave No Trace super Saturday for their Trips for Kids program.

 

Southwest Youth Corps operates a youth mountain biking program (Trips for Kids) for urban youth in Chattanooga that combines environmental education, mountain biking, and volunteer conservation service that meets on Saturdays in the spring from 10 am - 2 pm.  Their program provides 12-15 year-olds with a tool (a mountain bike) to explore natural areas in Chattanooga that they otherwise would not have access to.  They are engaged in environmental education topics, mentoring, and recreational safety.  Youth earn their mountain bike at successful completion of the program so that they can continue practicing their skill for years to come.
