In an effort to make bike share more accessible to young people, MoGo offers employment opportunities through the city’s Grow Detroit’s Young Talent program. Every summer, MoGo Youth Ambassadors learn how to maintain our bikes and stations, rebalance bikes in the system, and handle administrative responsibilities such as marketing and programming.
Over the course of their six-week Ambassadorship, our youth also puts together projects and events to promote MoGo to their peers. This past summer, our Youth Ambassadors assisted with Adaptive MoGo events, helped gather intercept surveys out in the field, and coordinated a group ride in partnership with Kicks 4 Kids Foundation, a local organization that gives donated shoes to young people who need them.
