There are some days when you come home with a deep sense of satisfaction. Knowing today was a job well done.
Working with youth and desiring to see them reach their full life potential isn’t like many jobs. You can’t say, “I painted that.” Or, “I built that.” Or, “I made this much in sales today.”
But boy, looking at the beaming faces of nine young people riding the BMX bikes they built through our Revolution(s) Earn-A-Bike initiative at Joyride150 today was simply amazing.
Pride. Confidence. Self-esteem. Fun. New skills. Community.
A job well done. Well done, Jesse – leader of Revolution(s). Well done, Clem – our chief bike mechanic. Well done, Amos – our crucial sidekick volunteer. And most importantly, well done Rev(s) youth – you did it!
Enjoy the ride.
