Sky's the Limit's Limitless! series is a chat with inspirational entrepreneurs and mentors who encourage us to think differently and #BeLimitless.
This episode we are highlighting entrepreneur Joshua Funches, Sky’s the Limit Entrepreneur and Founder of National Youth Bike Council, a youth-led non-profit that creates a space for youth to feel empowered and have the tools, leadership skills and role models to be leaders in their own community.
"I was one of the quietest of the siblings and very shy when I was younger. Fast forward a few years and now I am heading a National Council for youth interested in making positive change through bikes. Cycling became a passion for me in the fall of 2013 when I entered my first "earn-a-bike" program. I related with my peers that struggled but turned our love of bikes into an instrument of mental peace and general development. It was then that I discovered my passion for youth development and youth leadership through this experience. I still volunteer with that same with bike shop today!
Now, using bicycles as a catalyst, I have a personal goal of helping youth professionally and mentally develop. Through the National Youth Bike Council, we will do that and we will create more spaces for ourselves, share ideas, be role models, and teach life-long professional skills to our growing audience through annual projects" – Joshua
The National Youth Bike Council is youth-led initiative based on the belief that bicycles enable connected, climate-friendly, and more people-centric communities. By starting the conversation about bicycles at an early age, young people reap the benefits of good health and mental wellness for a lifetime. As a group, the organization provides a safe space for youth to lead, learn and connect in the bicycle community.
