Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Quality of Life Connections is an all-volunteer, grassroots non-profit founded in 2006 to postively impact our world one life at a time. We primarily work with at-risk and disadvantaged youth (ages 11-14) in San Diego County.
QOLC's premiere program is San Diego VeloYouth - an after-school cycling program held at the San Diego Velodrome in Balboa Park's Morley Field.
San Diego VeloYouth is a unique cycling program designed to motivate and empower at-risk youth, enrich their lives and strengthen our community. Working with middle schools where at least 65% of the student population participates in the free or reduced-price lunch program, SDVY works with youth (ages 11-14) in areas of high poverty and high gang activity. Students receive 18 hours of coaching and the opportunity to earn a bike through giving back (community service) and "paying it forward" (fundraising for bikes for the next group of athletes).Coaching focuses on the motto "STARs Create Possibilities" with emphasis on Self-respect, Teamwork, Achievement, and Responsibility. SDVY promotes healthy competition, social connection, personal improvement and education. At the completion of the program, participants have set and achieved a goal, increased their self-confidence, learned teamwork and gained awareness of healthy, fun sport as a mode of transportation and exercise.
