Norte Youth Leadership Council Readying For Long Ride

July 18, 2019

Five members of El Liderato, Norte’s youth leadership council, are training for the seven-day, 360-mile Shoreline West Bicycle Tour in partnership with the League of Michigan Bicyclists. The five northern Michigan teens are also committed to raising $7,200 for the League’s “Hero of the Road” initiative to empower more youth on bikes across Michigan. El Liderato, Norte's youth leadership council, empowers young people to stand up, speak up, get involved and do good in their community. The council is made up of a small group of young men and women age 13-18. League of Michigan Bicyclist’s mission is to promote cycling and advocate for the safety of all cyclists on Michigan roadways.

“It’s a perfect fit with Norte’s mission, and an awesome opportunity for our youth leadership council to leverage their skills and passion for a great cause outside of northern Michigan,” said Ty Schmidt, Executive Director of Norte.
