Youth Active Transportation Project

Active transportation (AT) initiatives are well documented to improve health and wellness for both children and adults. The Powell River Youth AT Project, funded by Vancouver Coastal Health and delivered last spring, was developed in partnership between PRCA, School District 47, the City of Powell River, and the PR Division of Family Practice. Read on to hear what kids learned during their classroom (and outdoor) sessions!

Primer: stay tuned for more information on the Bike Rack Design portion of this project, which has been funded by the City of Powell River. As we speak, six designs from grade 4 students from around the district are being fabricated by artist/welder Colin McRae, and should be ready for installation around the city later this year.
