After losing their home during the recession, Liz and Rich Grotsky wanted job security. So they both enrolled at Central Oregon Community College, eventually transferring to OSU-Cascades. They are graduating with degrees in human development and family sciences. During their time at OSU-Cascades, they started a nonprofit in Redmond called Empowering Youth Bicycle Program. It's a pay-it-forward program, where kids are taught to fix up a bike to give to someone in need first before picking out a bike to take home. The children learn bike maintenance to keep their bikes running smoothly. The Grotskys also wanted EYBP to be a second chance organization — they offer community service hours to adults on parole and probation.
