Toolkit: Youth Spokeswomen Mentorship
Last year, we awarded $3,000 in mini-grants to support new and growing programs that engage young women in bicycling.
Yesterday, we heard how Bike Easy and NOLA Women on Bikes, mini-grant recipients, were able to boost their efforts through their Youth Spokeswomen Mentorship Program. Marin Tockman, of NOLA Women on Bikes, and Virginia Brisley, of Bike Easy, presented a Women Bike webinar on their successful program, providing tips on how you can replicate this program in your community.
The aim of the mentorship program is to increase the representation of women from diverse backgrounds in the bicycling community while cultivating paid leadership opportunities for youth in New Orleans.
If you missed the webinar, watch the video recap below.
