Youth from inner city communities are typically only exposed to a limited amount of positive outlets and aren't being provided with the same opportunities as youth in more affluent communities. There are kids who aren't interested in school or sports and need other outlets to dedicate themselves to. With our programs, we provide youth from inner city communities with positive role models committed to fostering leadership, grit, determination, creativity and self-confidence ultimately steering youth away from negativity and violence.
Our Demos are a 1-2hr event with the goal of getting youth excited and interested into skateboarding culture. We bring out ramps, music, and provide a short workshop about skateboarding. Local skateboarders from the community are brought in to show off their skills, producing an exciting introduction into skateboarding. Skateboards, helmets, and protective equipment are provided to encourage kids to try out the sport.
Sk8 Kamp is a 1-5 day camp where we introduce skateboarding in a fun, creative, and interactive way. Youth get to paint and design their own skateboard, learn the functionality of the skateboard, do an interactive workshop centered around skateboard culture, and learn basic skateboard tricks.
Sk8 Skool is a long term program where we introduce skateboarding in a fun, positive, and engaging way. Punch cards with different tricks and progression levels are provided as skills advance. With Sk8 Skool, we focus on developing the hard skills of skateboarding as well as soft skills such as confidence, determination, grit, creativity, and leadership. Workshops are provided as an opportunity for youth to engage in the creative side of skateboarding culture.
