 Bikes for Kids is focused on getting kids in grades 3-8 from low income families in the Verde Valley outside and  active by providing them with bicycles, helmets, and encouraging an active lifestyle. 

The VVCC Bikes for Kids Program focuses on kids from families most in need by providing them with bicycles, helmets, and active lifestyle encouragement to get outside/active. The following percentage of students in Verde Valley Schools participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) according to Start Class:

    • West Sedona Elementary: 61.8% with 53.4% qualifying for free lunch* ;
    • Big Park Community School: 30.9% with 22.5% qualifying for free lunch*;
    • Cottonwood Middle School: 69.8% with 60.9% qualifying for free lunch*;
    • Clarkdale-Jerome Elementary School: 56.5% with 42.2% qualifying for free lunch*; and
    • Camp Verde Middle School: 71.8% with 62.9% qualifying for free lunch*;
* Family income under $15,171

We do this by raising funds to purchase new/used bikes, helmets, inspect/certify donated used bikes as safe and refurbishing any used bicycles that are cost effective to do so. The VVCC works with Verde Valley school administrators, churches and other community outreach organizations to identify candidates for bikes. We then match these candidates with volunteer mentors to work with recipients in keeping the bikes running and safe. These volunteer mentors also provide, when required, basic instruction on: 

    1. how to ride a bike; 
    2. maintenance (tire pressure/tread, quick releases, wheel wobble, brakes, chain and lube);
    3. repair (flat tires, broken chains); and 
    4. road hazards and safety.

If you wish to volunteer to be a Bikes for Kids Mentor, please contact Rich at the above email address.

The VVCC is an IRS Designated 501(c)3 Non Profit.
