Exploring Paths, is a mentorship program with the mission of providing youths with an outlet to have fun living healthy, active lives while simultaneously exploring their own paths of development through biking, mentorship and nature.
Exploring Paths ensures that children have access to bikes, helmets, one-on-one mentorship, journals, to bike paths in and out of NYC boroughs to youths between the ages of 8-18.
Exploring Paths is the vision of its founder Katherine Long, who discovered a true love for biking while an exchange student in Germany. She loved the freedom bicycling brought with it as she explored all the small towns near her host family.
Our aim is to improve the overall health and wellbeing of our participants and set them up for future success. Urban environments like New York and Washington, D.C. are full of opportunities. Exploring Paths ensures that those opportunities are actualized by youth in these environments.
Exercise and goal setting are key to overall well-being and future success, and our goal is to share these fun positive experiences with as many youths as possible.
