Providing youth opportunities create the change they are looking for!

Skate Alchemy Leadership Team (SALT) is a new program that cultivates the leadership, employment readiness, and civic engagement of youth skateboarders in the greater Tacoma community. This program is an innovative opportunity for youth to learn and grow through skateboarding. Harnessing the youth population’s passion for skateboarding, this program engages participants in activities in which they might not otherwise be exposed to. Often the voice of youth skateboarders is not sought after or heard in the community. This program connects youth with community leaders and government officials, provides opportunities to share voice, build employment and social skills which benefits youth long after program completion, and inspires a sense of self-worth and confidence that will drive youth to realize continued personal success
