About Going Places:

The most basic childhood right is a right to joy. Having been a teacher in title 1 schools (low income, high poverty), I’ve seen directly the struggles and the difficult hands in life some children are dealt. Many do not have the chance to visit places outside their immediate community or have a variety of experiences over weekends and the summer; rather, many children solely play on their street with neighborhood kids or strictly watch television. Over the years, after talking with students, I have come to the realization many have never ridden a bike nor do they have the means to own a bike, especially one that is new. I soon began to envision how each student's quality of life could improve if they had more freedom to ride around their neighborhoods. A bike provides a sense of freedom, a sense of escape, a sense of ownership, and basic, untainted childhood joy.
There are already so many wonderful organizations in existence that provide services for things children need, but not many are out there who provide children in need of simple joys. Going Places will work diligently to provide joy in a variety of forms to children in title 1 schools because kids are kids, and all too often we forget that no matter the circumstance, we as a community need to better ensure these title 1 kids have memories of joy as well.

Mission: “Our mission at ‘Going Places’ is to provide children in Title 1 Schools (low income, high poverty) with the most basic childhood right; a right to joy. ”

-Katie Blomquist, Going Places Founder and Operating Director
