One San Diego presents grant for students
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – One San Diego said it is partnering with non-profit San Diego VeloYouth to provide 25 students from Crawford High School the opportunity to participate in a six-week cycling program.
“What they all share are huge hearts and a desire to move beyond their circumstances”, says Matt Hoffmann, San Diego VeloYouth President and Director of Programming. “More than just a cycling program, VeloYouth allows kids to experience new ways of thinking and being”, says Hoffman.
One of the core components of the program is that all students participating give back in their own communities through community service. “This is an amazing example of how to empower teens to take action and play their part in their own communities by volunteering or becoming mentors to their peers”, says Dena DiSarro, Executive Director of One San Diego.
