About Bartali Youth in Movement:
Bartali - Youth in Movement operates a network of cycling centers for at-risk youth aged 13-18, who mainly live in youth villages and welfare boarding facilities throughout Israel.
We leverage the enormous power inherent in long-distance offroad cycling journeys to strengthen the youth's resilience, develop a sense of belonging and encourage ambition and a growth mindset.
The annual programs are designed to fit and complement the unique educational and therapeutic missions of the various facilities, impart cycling skills, promote motivation and self-discipline, expand the youth's sense of responsibility and capability, aid in developing perseverance and determination and create a strong sense of teamwork.
This is so that when time comes, they will be able to integrate optimally into Israeli society.
There are numerous charity rides, but it is rare to have the opportunity to leverage your own passion to give back in kind to others who need it most(Michael Faibisch).
