Rafiki Youth Biking Program

This March, we are preparing an adventurous 12-week program that will expose middle to high school aged youth to bike riding, help them explore new areas in their community, and teach them to build and maintain their own bikes. Our mission is to provide green transportation to the community while implementing restorative practices among young people. We are determined to integrate generational collaborations by having different generations spend time together and learn to support each other. We are confident that our restorative life skills circles with youth, mental health practitioners, and other organizations will help them develop emotional intelligence and learn how to restore their emotions and any traumas they may have experienced or caused. Taking place every Saturday 10 AM-12 PM from March 2nd until May 11th, 2024, we are providing fun community rides, building workshops, and healthy meals for a holistic experience.

To register for this program, please email our Program Coordinator Destiny Williams at by February 15th. Limited spots available. Register now.

Rafiki Youth Empowerment Circles

Our Youth Empowerment Circles are tailored for middle and high school students, providing a safe and supportive space for them to embrace their black identity, amplify their voices, excel in their education pursuits, and navigate life’s challenges. This program offers engaging sessions, discussions, mental health support, and opportunities for empowering students, supporting their academic journey, and nurturing their personal growth. Taking place at Rafiki Coalition every Wednesday from 6-8pm, we provide nutritious meals during these sessions, ensuring a holistic experience as we cultivate confident and successful young leaders.
