Today: Chicago Voyagers
In 2008, in order to expand the impact of the program, Chicago Voyagers undertook the sponsorship of the chapter, moved it to Chicago, and renamed it. The Chicago Voyagers board integrated the programs and added activities such as canoeing, hiking, cross country skiing, rock climbing, river trips, and camping.
Trips for Kids Chicago is a program of Chicago Voyagers, a recognized affiliate of Trips for Kids ® a 501(c)3 California nonprofit corporation. Trips for Kids was founded in 1988 and now operates in over 75 locations throughout the United States and Canada. As an affiliate, we embrace the Trip for Kids mission: to provide transformative cycling experiences through a network of chapters that promote healthy, recreational lifestyles, environmental awareness, and personal empowerment for young people of all communities, especially those most in need. Trips for Kids Chicago currently operates a Trail Rides Program for our local community. These programs aim to build self-esteem, inspire healthy lifestyles and instill environmental values. We would not be able to give deserving youth transformative cycling experiences without the generous support of Trips for Kids major sponsors. We are proud to be working in partnership with these supportive businesses and individuals. Please join us in saying thank you by patronizing these businesses whenever possible.
