Girls get a chance to building bikes and self esteem


It's a fitting past time for those living in the black hill, and a chance to learn a trade for up to 40 under-privileged girls in kota territory.
Youth and Family services kicked off an innovative new program, aimed at girls aged 10 to 17, that teaches them the basics of motorcycle repair.

Black Hills Harley Davidson donated a slightly damaged 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle for the girls to repair and redesign over a 20 week period. Once it's complete, the bike will be raffled off with all proceeds going to the Youth and Family services programs.
"They're going to learn team work, self esteem and the pride that they can do something non traditional in the women's field," said Mary Helland, President of Youth and Family services and Girls Inc.
The redesigned bike will be displayed at the Black Hills Motorcycle Show in April. Organizers estimate it may be worth upwards of $20,000 once its complete.
