THE TOPIC (PBOT EDITION)

The Community Cycling Center has been working with youth through the "Big Jump: Gateway to Opportunity" project. We'll be discussing our exploratory educational model and the ways the project can increase accessibility and opportunity for the youth living and learning in the Gateway neighborhoods.

KEY LEARNING TAKEAWAYS

  • How exploration can drive learning and retention
  • The current conditions and barriers youth face when using active transportation in the neighborhood
  • What existing infrastructure exists
  • How the Gateway to Opportunity can connect the existing infrastructure and improve access for our young people
