Youth Leaders: The Future is Now

By bikeleague | May 4, 2015

From the streets to the Statehouse, social change isn’t just the domain of adults. Aided by the rise of social media and standing on the shoulders of youth movements for civil rights, young people are rocking the vote and rethinking how our communities can work for everyone. And many of them see bikes as a transformative tool. Recognizing that power and potential, the Youth Bike Summit has evolved from a single event to a national movement in just five years. It’s not only united thousands of diverse and dynamic individuals and organizations, but started a dialog about the way we view bike advocacy and movement leadership. Instead of being a token voice or an inviting image for a campaign brochure, young people are being empowered by Youth Bike leaders to create their own initiatives and inform advocacy work from their own unique experiences.
