Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced bike rider or brand new. The kids won’t notice. We promise. They want someone who cares and proves it by showing up. You’ll need a bike that can handle the trails, a helmet, a backpack, and a desire to help kids experience real connections while outside exploring their community.


What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer Empowering people to become the best versions of themselves through outdoor adventure.


What skills are required for this project? 

Answer You can be experienced or brand new. We’ll train you. We need leaders who are willing to show up and be a role model for the kids. If you’re inexperienced but love working with kids, we’d love to have you on our team. 906AT offers volunteers two training options. You can attend the Leading Adventure Summit or complete the training online (or do both). We also offer OTB (On The Bike) Skills for Leaders, so you know how to teach the skills we’ll focus on this summer.


What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer We are always looking for Group Leaders, Sweeps, and Rovers to ride in the middle. We also need volunteers to help set up, tear down and keep an eye on basecamp while the groups are out on the trail.


What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer Complete your training online or in person. Mid-June through late August, Tuesday evenings, 5:45 PM - 8:15 PM.


Additional information (not required).

Answer Now more than ever, kids need the freedom, opportunity, and lessons learned as members of their local Adventure Team. They need adventure, not another competition. This is not another youth development activity driven by competition, wins, and losses. Adventure Teams focus on developing confident, capable, durable, and independent young humans. We achieve these goals by meeting each child where they are. Following two years of a pandemic and an absence of social connections, giving youth a sense of belonging to something larger than themself has never been more important. You can make a difference in their life, and they might make a difference in yours.
