Join us for a presentation by one of our partners working to promote active transportation in East Portland:
Our Young People and the Gateway to Opportunity
Jonnie Ling, Director of Programs and Enterprise, Community Cycling Center
Portland was one of 10 cities chosen to participate in the Big Jump Project of People for Bikes, with efforts focused in the Gateway District. In addition to several bikeway projects, PBOT arranged for an education component.
The Community Cycling Center has been working with youth through the “Big Jump: Gateway to Opportunity” project. We’ll be discussing our exploratory educational model and the ways the project can increase accessibility and opportunity for the youth living and learning in the Gateway neighborhoods.
About the presenter: Jonnie Ling has been with the Community Cycling Center for 11 years. He has worked in bicycle education since 2003 and is committed to working with the community to create a more equitable and multicultural approach to bicycle education.
