HOW WE WORK

We respond to local demands for skateboarding facilities, in environments otherwise lacking in sports infrastructure and communal/youth spaces.

We partner with the most recognised skatepark builders in the world to provide professionally built, world-class concrete skateparks, free of charge to communities.

We leverage pedagogical expertise and years of teaching experience to develop and implement targeted program curricula focused on teaching life-skills and empowerment through skateboarding. Learn more.

We transfer the long-term running of the park and project to local partner organisations to ensure sustainability and local ownership of the programme
