Skate Rising is an inclusive program, focused on girls ages 4-18, that holds free monthly events. Our mission is to teach compassion through service opportunities and empowerment through skateboarding. Each event, which is centered around a selected theme relating to empowerment or community service, incorporates an educational component or small service project to engage the girls, before the skate clinic. The program offers all safety equipment, trained coaches, educational supplies, partnership organization, and free raffles. We aim to have each girl walk away feeling empowered from overcoming their fears, feeling supported by a group of like-minded girls, and feeling a sense of responsibility for their community.
