CAMTB Teen Ambassadors

The California Mountain Bike Coalition is pleased to announce the CAMTB Teen Ambassador program, in partnership with NorCal and SoCal interscholastic cycling leagues. This initiative provides a cohort-based internship model for junior and senior high school student-athletes that are interested in building their resumes while riding, connecting, and taking meaningful action with other Calfironia-based student-athletes.

About the Teen Ambassador Program

The ambassadorship is rooted in NICA’s Teen Trail Corps’ SPEAK, SERVE, RIDE, and RESPECT principles. The program aims to educate student-athletes about the world of cycling advocacy and inspire a culture of service and personal action. Ambassadors will work alongside our advocacy team, trail partners, and industry representatives, in pursuit of more and better bike-friendly trails in California.
