[UPDATE] The Westside Activity and Youth Center Initiative

Westside Atlanta youth and community has decided to come together in order to create a space for them to prosper.

The WAY, or Westside Activity & Youth Center, will allow community members and organizations to co-work to engage youth through programming and presence in a private space that compliments a public park. We reached out to members of the community to involve them in the process and the response was pretty amazing.

We recently had our very first WAY meeting and it was a great turn out.
The Westside community definitely has something to say. The WAY initiative will be the example for what can happen when the community actually gets involved and create the changes they wish to see.

Check out this clip from our meeting: 

Interested in attending our next meeting, let us know:

December's Safe Cycling Course Recap

In case you missed it: On Christmas Eve,
Wecycle Atlanta had our Safe Cycling Course. Our Safe Cycling Course was created to provide lessons on bike safety. During this course, we provide a hands-on learning experience for bike maintenance, bike safety, and bike riding. We also encourage active engagement between the youth and their peers and parents. Our last Safe Cycling Course was a success! 

The youth came out and were taught how to maintenance their bikes, the proper hand signals, and the safest ways to ride.

Each kid took home a bike for completing our Wecycle Atlanta Safe Cycling Course. Thank you for helping us get more youth on W.H.E.E.L.S. 

Stay Tuned for information about our January course, details coming soon.
 Always remember to Do The Bike Thing!

The WAY Center Meeting

Greetings Atlanta,

2017 is all about Westside Atlanta Youth.

We will be having our first Westside Atlanta Youth meeting on January 10th.
This is a meeting to find stakeholders and partners in a community operated youth and development center in West Atlanta. The Westside Activity & Youth Center will allow community members and organizations to co-work to engage youth through programming and presence in a private space that compliments a public park.

This model was created by WeCycle Atlanta in their bicycle shop. Shawn Walton noticed that providing youth with sporting and engagement equipment:

- Fostered healthy relationships with youth
- Fostered healthy relationships with Parents
- Gave youth a safe and comfortable space to get out of the elements
- Allowed Wecycle Atlanta to reach parents and youth with opportunities
- Created a data resource that aided connecting community members to resources
- Increased the healthy activities of youth and community members
- Gave community members opportunities to have positive interactions with youth
- Created a youth odd job opportunity list 

We would like to offer this platform, that has infrastructure and funding, to the community for a buy-in as a solution that can engage youth in positive ways, bolster positive development, all while mitigating negative behavior over time. This is us coming together to view the facility and to discuss a plan of action that can show the youth THE WAY.

Who should come to this meeting?
-Community Members interested in supporting youth 
- Community Members concerned about youth crime 
- City Officials that can offer aid through legislation and finances 
- Youth - Families
 -Clergy Persons  

It's 2017. Let's dig in with tried solutions that can aid our communities with little bureaucracy. Let's be the resources we need. Let's be a village and show our youth The Way.

Come out to network, fellowship, and organize with us on Jan.10th at Wecycle Atlanta Bike Shop from 7PM-10PM
