Youth in Action teamed up with BiketoSchoolTO to offer a full day leadership event at Evergreen BrickWorks for students from multiple TDSB/TDCSB bike clubs. The students learned about cycling advocacy and leadership skills (such as how to promote their bike clubs at school and the act of cycling around the city). They took part in many workshops (riding skills, bike maintenance, communications, etc.) and put the skills to good use in the final presentations, where the students presented their future plans for their bike clubs.

Thank you everyone for coming out and putting your best effort into this leadership training. Toronto is lucky to have young leaders like you to promote sustainable transportation!
