  • Guest lectures by elected officials, skate industry pros, local business owners, community organizers, AND MORE!

  • Skate park revitalization

  • Skate park design, maintenance and fabrication

 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 benefit youth long after program completion, and inspires a sense of self-worth and confidence that will drive youth to realize continued personal success.
