ANDRUS Receives First NYPUM 5-GEARS Award

August 23, 2017

ANDRUS was featured on the front page of the National Youth Program Using Minibikes (NYPUM) spring 2017 newsletter for receiving the very first 5-GEARS award! 

The “5-GEARS Award for Exceptional Safety, Programming and Administrative Practices” is a recognition and reward system for programs that not only meet standards for quality assurance but excel in 19 specific areas. It provides a certificate recognition program with eligibility each year.

One of only six NYPUM programs nationwide to receive this new recognition, ANDRUS is proud to have a thriving program that demonstrates safety and efficiency on all levels. Other recipients were Black Mountain Home for Children, FILTER Youth Development, Inc., SAM Inc. of Tioga County PA, South Mountain Children & Family, RFK Children’s Action Corps, Inc.


The newsletter cover features ANDRUS’ own Alfred Mack instructing a group of ANDRUS beginner riders as the illustrative photo for the new “5 Gears Award for Exceptional Safety, Programming, and Administrative Practices.”
