Through our programs, El Grupo addresses some key community issues:
- Childhood obesity – kids need to play! We focus on the bicycle as a tool to be used for fun, fitness and transportation and on developing healthy habits for the rest of one’s life.
- Social and environmental disconnect – We focus on engaging youth in the community and the natural world that surrounds us in meaningful ways.
- Need for high quality out of school time programs for youth – We focus on the individual – building confidence, character and leadership skills – as well as camaraderie and teamwork with our youth
- All youth need a path! – We focus on providing opportunities of cycling for those youth who have maybe not found their positive path through traditional sports or programs.
