Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide outdoor outings (primarily bike rides), community service, and educational opportunities for at risk kids that do not have access to these types of activities within their communities or environments.

Description

Trips for Kids Charlotte is a Public, Private partnership with the Mecklenburg County Parks & Recreation Department and various Charlotte Metrolina Non-profit organizations that assist TFKC in conducting its Kids, Bike Ride and Community Service/Education Programs. The Kids Program allows kids to enter into and participate in TFKC programs from ages 10-15. The Bike Ride Program takes kids from our Kid's Program, as well as, "groups" of kids from partner non-profits/government units on mountain bike rides. Our Community Service/Education Programs provide opportunities for "giving back" through maintaining local bike trails, teaching bike saftey in the school system, and doing bike maintenance on TFKC's bikes. Check out www.tripsforkidscharlotte.org for more on TFKC's programs.

Would you recommend Trips for Kids Charlotte?

by Matt L. (May 14, 2011)
I was building a bike with my best friend and we quickly realized just how in over our heads we were. Our frames were too old for any of the other area bike shops to even consider working on and yet Ben and James were more than willing to help us. They answered all of our questions, their patience never once wearing thin. What was even more impressive is they were able to take donations, work on bikes and answer everyone in the stores questions. This is an amazing place and I cannot wait until I get the opportunity to volunteer there to do my part to help out the Charlotte area.
