Wheels of Courage Returns!
We are now into our 4th year of Wheels of Courage, a leadership program for 15-30 year olds
who are keen to serve. From program start until spring of 2023, participants will be supported to develop and carry out a project to
benefit their community, while learning bike mechanic skills, enjoying cycling and workshops with notable community leaders. Popular workshops form
previous years have included Indigenous Gardening, Carpentry, Naloxone Training, Safe Cycling, Public Speaking, Queer Activist History, zine
making, and budgeting and personal finance. Participants will join a group of like-minded youth from diverse experiences and backgrounds,
and learn about community leadership, and creating positive change.
Are you self-motivated, passionate, curious, open to new experiences and ideas, and self reflective? Do you value cooperation over
competition? Looking for a challenge? Wheels of Courage is for you!
We're really proud of the accomplishments of program participants. Together, they have created public murals and art pieces, produced
helpful zines on current issues, fundraised for partner organisations, created community gardens, and more.
Past participants offer the program high praise. They report feeling much more connected to and at home in their community, empowered to
make change, and inspired by what is already happening in Winnipeg, and what is possible.
Applicants should be ready to commit to 2-3 hours per week to program activities over the course of a year. Apply before May 6, 2022.
The WRENCH is grateful for generous support for Wheels of Courage from Canada Services Corps!
