Free Bikes 4 Kidz
MISSIONFree Bikes 4 Kidz MN is a nonprofit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthy childhood by providing bikes to those most in need. The public donates gently used bikes, we organize thousands of volunteers to clean and refurbish them, and then we give them away to youth in need. Free Bikes 4 Kidz MN represents the largest bike give-away program in the US and occupies an important and underserved segment of service to the low-income population in Minnesota.
Boys and Girls Club of the Twin Cities
The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Power of Story
Power of Story's vision is that young people who have experienced out of home placement have equal, consistent person-centered access to their history, stories, photos, and medical information. Understanding and having access to your personal life history is key to building a healthy identity, accessing appropriate interventions, feeling accepted and processing a complex past, but is often not available to young people who have experienced foster care, adoption or kinship care. We engage young people, care-takers and professionals in the research and curation of life histories, provide training rooted in youth-centered best practices, and advocate for increased awareness and quality implementation of life histories.
