Concrete Jungle Foundation (CJF) is an international non-profit organisation that builds skateparks and runs youth development programming in communities around the world.
We empower individuals and communities worldwide through fostering and sustaining the positive values inherent to skateboarding.
1 /. We respond to local demands for skateboarding facilities, in environments otherwise lacking in sports infrastructure and communal/youth spaces.
2 /. We partner with the most recognised skatepark builders in the world to provide professionally built, world-class concrete skateparks, free of charge to communities.
3 /. We leverage pedagogical expertise and years of experience to provide targeted youth programmes focused on life-skills for children and professional development for adolescents - through skateboarding. Learn more.
4 /. We build up local capacity and transfer the long-term running of the park and project to local partner organisations, to ensure sustainability as well as local ownership of the projectContact us
