Empowering Youth Through Bicycles
Goings On... 
Congrats! You made it through a very busy spring season/semester and the end of the school year is in sight! Speaking of school (once teachers get what the respect they deserve! #RedforEd) - we shift our focus a bit now to helping you finish out the semester strong. Academic Support is here for you - or come clean up your bike - or come to one of the Pilates/Corework classes we will have this month to help stay focused! 
DEADLINE IS NEAR! We were fortunate to receive critical funds from Tucson Conquistadores last year in relation to our clubhouse expansion. They like to "help those who help themselves" and so we NEED YOU TO SELL Raffle Tickets. This will help us raise addtional funds to keep summer activities affordable AND better our chances of getting funds from Tucson Conquistadores, again! If you have not bought your 3 tickets per rider @ 10 each, PLEASE make that payment here, now! 
All Final Money and Ticket Stubs are Due back by Thursday, May 10th! Want to work bike camp? Want to have cool opportunities this summer? Sell some raffle tickets, please :) 
For the 8th consecutive year, El Grupo will run 3 weeks of Summer Bike Camps for kids ages 7-13 from our clubhouse:
June 4-8
June 11-15
June 18-22
El Grupo youth riders (age 14 and older) will have the opportunity to work camp for a stipend. It will most likely be limited to one week PAID per rider, but there may be other opportunties that veteran riders can earn.
ALL TEAM MEMBERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER ONE WEEK in additional to the paid week in order to go on the Durango MTB Trip. The additional cost for the week is $300. 
Durango trip: July 22-28
Prerequisisites and sign ups for working/volunteering for camps include: 1. Turning in a resume if you are 14 or older by May 29th. (see workshop below)
2. Volunteering one week in addition to getting paid one week
3. Signing up via the link below
Please sign up for both your volunteer and paid week, if applicable. Thanks!
