National Youth Program Using Minibikes is an organization that works with youth nationwide to use the trail bike as a motivational tool, and to open possibilities of learning and growth. NYPUM has consistently proven to affect the youth’s social, emotional and psychological development positively within the program. A core idea is to put kids together with a caring adult, a trail bike, and to learn how to safely and respectfully ride in the outdoors. However, the true purpose of NYPUM is to build self-esteem, self-discipline, teamwork, and leadership skills in our youth. Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch partners with NYPUM to provide the program to Ranch residents in both Minot and Bismarck.
