The 2021 Peru Project

Together, let's build 2 new skateparks and impact hundreds of children in Northern Peru.

Building two skateparks & running youth programmes for marginalized kids in northern Peru.

Reaching over 300 children through our Edu-Skate programme + providing a safe haven and social hub for hundreds more.

Running our Apprenticeship programme during the builds: teaching local adolescents the skatepark construction process while earning a wage.

A locally driven, globally supported project: we’re supporting  @CJF_Peru  to make it happen.

This is a collective effort, and we can’t do it without YOU.

Please donate today to help support marginalized kids in northern Peru.

The Programmes

While only building a skatepark can undoubtedly provide a positive impact for individuals and communities, CJF has long observed that in order to truly provide socio-economic benefit, an investment into youth programming at the site is required. This is why we always facilitate positive youth development (PYD) programming at our project locations - through skateboarding.

Edu-Skate


CJF’s flagship youth development programme will run at the Cerrito Skatepark, offering skateboarding and life-skills classes to children aged 6-16. We expect to reach some 300 children per year through the daily classes.

Planting Seeds Apprenticeship


Offering paid apprenticeship programmes for youth aged 16+ in photography and videography, editing and multimedia production, entrepreneurship and project management, as well as skatepark construction and maintenance. Read more about the programme here.
