Make a Contribution
Presently operating 32 programs in urban, suburban and rural communities from Los Angeles to Boston, NYPUM programs are run by non-profit or government youth service agencies. NYPUM's commitment to America's youth has never been stronger as the obstacles facing children today have never been greater. We pledge to continue our work with youth by using the minibike as a means of getting them involved in a healthy peer group with positive adult role models.
The National Youth Project Using Minibikes is able to share The Power of Dreams® thanks to the support of generous individual and corporate donors.
There's a lot of different ways you can get involved with NYPUM. Become a mentor to youth by volunteering to help with activities or go on a trail ride with the group. Don't know how to ride but would like to? Your local program can do that when you commit to building a bond with youth. Just look for a program using the map on this site and connect!
Programs have needs for things like sponsoring a youth for a year or helping to maintain a minibike; Donating your motorcycle maintenance skills/time Donate riding gear (gloves, helmets, boots, etc.); Business’s can donate an activity (bowling, movies, etc) or sponsor a youth's participation in a NYPUM Rodeo or other event.

NYPUM programs can be hosted and operated by youth serving non-profit or municipal organizations like community-based agencies, residential treatment centers, school districts, police and probation departments.There is tremendous flexibility in terms of how organizations design their NYPUM programs. No two NYPUM programs are exactly alike other than sharing the commitment to following our methodology of using Success Plans and Mentoring. NYPUM can be successful wherever there is a community need.

A New Partner!
National Youth Project Using Minibikes (NYPUM) and the California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division have partnered to provide mentoring and education for urban youth through off-highway motorcycle recreation.
Using the trail bike in the outdoors, NYPUM captures a young person’s imagination, enthusiasm and harnesses it to promote positive change and growth. Combined with possibly the largest off-highway riding area in the U.S., California youth get the chance to explore much more of the state they live in.
For 50 years, NYPUM has worked nationally with community youth service organizations, including government, nonprofit, and faith-based groups, to help mentor youth using its time-tested mentoring program. For more information about the partnership, click here.
