Over the last 18 months, we’ve been watching Brittany Young build B-360 while debunking myths about black children and dirt bike culture. B-360 utilizes dirt bike culture to end the cycle of poverty, disrupt the prison pipeline, and build bridges in communities. Through a STEM education program, community engagement, workforce pipe-lining and events, they equip disconnected youth and adults with the skills to secure educational and career opportunities in STEM fields, while changing perceptions around dirt bike riders and engineers.
Super BOSS, eh?
