High-quality, out-of-school programs have long been identified by researchers as important for the positive development of youth. Two Wheel View programs support youth in the critical hours outside of school when young people are less likely to be supervised and have the potential for making poor decisions that can result in accident, injury or crime.
TWV programs increase youth resiliency and lessen risk factors of students through cognitive development, social competence, and emotional and physical wellbeing; thus increasing their likelihood of future success.
The Earn-a-Bike program uses the bike as a tool to develop leadership and teamwork skills as well as bike mechanic capabilities in youth ages 11-17. Full Cycle encourages First Nations youth to attend school and to engage in positive activity that builds community and enhances youth resiliency. TWV also hosts fundraising and educational Community Events.
