More about Cecilia coming soon...

Youth Advocate


Ty is fun and energetic, especially when he is working along side youth. Though he joined the team in 2019, he is no stranger to youth ministry. Ty has been serving at his local church for more than 12 years in music and youth ministry programs. He has a love for mentoring youth, but adults as well through music and what God has placed inside specific songs to guide them through hard times. In his free time he is often skating around skate-parks, hanging out with his church life group, going to local car meets, or up on stage playing guitar for his church. 

Youth Advocate


David has been working with youth and bicycles since 2008. He began working at an after school program mentoring middle and high school students who were predominately first and second generation immigrants living in the Pico-Union neighborhood of Los Angeles. This was important to him because his parents lived in the same neighborhood when they first arrived from El Salvador escaping the civil war. Since then, David has chosen to invest in similar populations serving a diverse population of low-income youth. David has extensive experience working with youth and a passion for all things bikes and cycling.
