I am WAYYYYY PUMPED to help Positive Tracks go after its mission to help young people sweat for good - so kids can make change using the power of their own minds and muscles. Positive Tracks believes that combining athletics and civic contribution helps our youngest generation understand that they can make a difference now, doing something they love, on their own terms and turf. I'M INNNNNNNNNN.
Here's why it's so dang important to me: Our youngest generation is inheriting a society with major challenges, from climate change to revitalized racism. Technology has given youth a view of global challenges like no generation before them. Youth want to deliver meaningful change, yet pathways that activate and support youth civic engagement haven’t kept pace with their needs. Enter Positive Tracks to help young people create solutions to societal challenges by providing civic opportunities they find meaningful because they deliver ownership, creative freedom, and a hands-on, active experience. Thousands of causes are benefiting, too! To date, 52,000+ young people have turned 300,000+ miles into $9,200,000+ and critical advocacy for organizations that shape our communities and world.
