Donford and other local organizers identified the need to train more Earn-A-Bike Instructors throughout the island to strengthen the program and to keep up with the demand from young people for Earn-A-Bike programming.

The Instructor Training Program trained 18 youth and adults focusing on youth leadership development, gender sensitivity, teaching methods and bike mechanics. Donford is now working with the new Earn-A-Bike Instructors in Nevis to plan upcoming Earn-A-Bike sessions. Thanks Josh, Ashley, Zacorah and Aisha for your excellent work in supporting the continued development of the Nevis Earn-A-Bike!
