Locally Investing in our Youth. Front Yard Bikes on Local Leaders:The Podcast 114

From the FYB website: Front Yard Bikes is a community bike shop that focuses on teaching participants of all ages how to fix and maintain bikes. We teach and develop skills in mathematics, physics and mechanics, while promoting inclusivity, mentorship, recreation and academic achievement. We offer youth in the community a safe, free after-school program. They are taught responsibility and become peer leaders as they are faced with ethical and moral questions in their day-to-day lives. The heart of our program is motivated by compassion for kids from low-income families that are willing to work for what they get. We hope to impact the youth of Baton Rouge, one bike at a time, one heart at a time, because the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Jim Chapman sits down with the founder of Front Yard Bikes (Dustin Lafont and supporter Jenny Seivers) and discovers so much more about the inception of the program as well as future plans.
