Trips for Kids® (TFK®) is an international non-profit organization that provides mountain bike outings and job-training for kids around the world who would not otherwise have these opportunities.
Using the bike as a vehicle for learning, we combine lessons in personal responsibility, achievement, fitness and environmental awareness through the simple act of having fun.
Operating in the United States, Canada, Israel and Sierra Leone, Trips For Kids® (TFK®) has opened the world of cycling to over 124,000 at-risk youth since 1988 through mountain bike rides and Earn-A-Bike programs. The over 80 Trips For Kids chapters we support combine lessons in confidence building, achievement and environmental awareness through the development of practical skills, and the simple act of having fun.
We invite you to get involved and make a positive impact in the lives of underserved young people. If you are interested in your child joining the Trips for Kids® program, or if you would like to become a volunteer in the program, please contact Executive Director Peter McCarthy at the Club, (508) 672-6340.
