The Bahati Foundation Cycling Team launched officially March 2010 in Los Angeles, California headed by seven-time US national champion cyclist Rahsaan Bahati. With the successful launch of the race team, Rahsaan implemented his vision for “The Bahati Foundation” conceived to GIVEBack and serve as a positive influence on community youth. The Foundation provides support to inner-city youth in under-served communities through inspirational speaking engagements, cycling, and educational outreach programs. These outreach programs are designed to motivate and empower youth toward higher achievement in S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education, and cycling. The Bahati Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
We believe all underserved youth can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
To empower inner-city youth by providing exposure in programs that promote; fitness, positive values, healthy lifestyle, and S.T.R.E.A.M. [Science, Technology, Recreation, Engineering, Arts and Medicine] education through cycling – resulting in real-life power, on and off the bike.
To Inspire, Empower, Engage, Expose, and Transcend youth so they reach their highest potential.
