BUY A BIKE AND SUPPORT A GOOD CAUSE! BIKE SALE TO BE HELD AT YOUTH GUIDANCE MENTORING ACADEMY

Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Several of the bikes up for sale have been repaired by students in the program with oversight from adult mentors at Bike Walk Indian River County.

“The students and mentors at Bike Walk of Indian River County have worked very hard repairing bikes this summer, and they are ready to see them enjoyed by the community,” said Phil Barnes, Youth Guidance Executive Director.

In addition to the bike mechanic training program, Youth Guidance plans to add gardening, cosmetology, cooking, home economics, plumbing, and boat/auto repair within the next year.

Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy is dedicated to enriching the lives of Indian River County youth through mentoring relationships that inspire trust, self-esteem, and positive futures. Founded in 1973, Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy serves children ages 5-18 from low-income families.

Children receive daily meals and participate in one-on-one and group mentoring programs that include cooking, sewing, trade skills, life skills, STEAM, tutoring, community service, and more.
