Mobilized FreeWheelers: Youth Advocacy
CFW is increasing its capacity to facilitate youth advocacy efforts related to cycling and active transportation. Mobilized FreeWheelers: Youth Advocacy capitalizes on community research done in 2013 to imagine creative solutions to build safe, accessible streets for young cyclists in Toronto.
A group of participants are working in three local elementary schools with goal of increasing the number of students who get to and from school on bicycles. The program gives Youth Leaders the basic skills and tools to make change. As an outcome of this project, CFW Youth Advocates will make presentations in local schools towards the end of the school year.
