SPONSORED BY ALCHEMY LEADERSHIP TEAM

This program connects youth with community leaders and government officials, provides opportunities to share voice, build employment and social skills which benefit youth long after program completion, and inspires a sense of self-worth and confidence that will drive youth to realize continued personal success. This group is comprised entirely of youth volunteers looking to improve their skate skills and their local community. 

 The METALS program is a community-based recidivism/prevention program for court-involved youth in Pierce County. We use skateboarding as a tool to help youth transition out of the Juvinille Court system and build a network of positive supporters, mentors, and friends.

MENTORING, EDUCATING, TRANSFORMING, AND LEADING THROUGH SKATEBOARDING

HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT FOR SKATEBOARDING

Students experience skateboarding first hand, earning P.E. credit while they learn all the basics of pushing, stopping, navigating urban environments, and complicated maneuvers for more advanced students.  Our custom made curriculum focuses on the history of skateboarding, and is aimed to give students a firm grasp on the past so that they better understand the present.
