The B Project
The B Project is an outdoor sports based program centered around building confidence, self-esteem, and esprit de corps among young women ages 14-18. Centered around cycling, the program will present young women with adventurous activities designed to be fun, challenge their fitness and minds, and give them skills needed to set and accomplish goals. Meeting 2-3 days a week, one session will present an activity the women may be familiar such as mountain biking but challenge them with different terrain, longer duration rides, and trails they may not be familiar with. A second session will mix in a more adventurous activity, either combined with mountain biking or not, they might not be as familiar with to challenge both their minds and bodies. All the different activities will be designed to help prepare and build them toward a season finale goal, which will be made known to them upon arriving for their first session. The goal through the whole experience: help them realize with the right skills, confidence, and mindset there are no limits. To promote them to seek out their own adventures and gain skills, both physically and mentally, to go confidently towards achieving their goals as they continue on the journey in life.
