ALCHEMY IS THE ABILITY TO TURN SOMETHING ORDINARY INTO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY, AND IT'S HAPPENING EVERY DAY.
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.
MENTORING, EDUCATING, TRANSFORMING, AND LEADING THROUGH SKATEBOARDING
Participants in this program learn to use skating as a positive activity and stress management tool while also building self-confidence, learning the history of skateboarding, and art and design skills as they create their own custom skateboards which they can take home with them upon successful completion of the 8 week program.
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.
