SKATE LIKE A GIRL's Photo

BENEFITING: SKATE LIKE A GIRL

EVENT DATE: Jan 16, 2015

THE STORY:

Since 2000, Skate Like a Girl has touched the lives of thousands of people. Seeking to create an inclusive & accessible skateboard community, we have taught countless youth, women and families the basics of skateboarding through a variety of programs unique to the needs of various communities. Beyond this, dozens of young people have gained job skills through our Youth Employment Skateboarding program and countless volunteers have dedicated years ensure the success of our organization.  

But our work is far from done.

Over the last year, Skate Like a Girl has taken leaps of progress. Some of our accomplishments include brining on Directors of Development & Programs, expanding summer & year-round programs, hosting our 5th annual Wheels of Fortune all-girls skateboarding event, and embarked on our 5th cohort of the YES program. Let's all work to ensure Skate Like a Girl continues with this momentum in the future. 

We ask you to join us in supporting Skate Like a Girl; it is only with the continued generosity and support of our friends and community that we can be successful!

  • Mega Ramp $1000 –  Help to outfit our teen instructors with the proper uniforms and training who will teach over 1500 lessons this summer.

 

Funds raised will go towards the Youth Employment Skateboarding (YES) program’s 5th summer in operation. The YES program has trained over 30 young men and women, collectively logging over 2000 hours of volunteer service through supporting over 200 events, and teaching over 1,500 skateboard lessons to kids in Seattle, and the greater area. The program was funded with Department of Neighborhood funds for the first 2 summers, this 3rd summer was based on adult volunteer hours to coordinate the program, along with teen commitment. We want to make the YES program a staple of Seattle, and raise $30,000 in order to staff the program, pay stipends, purchase equipment, and properly train teens.

The 12 and Under Learn to Skate program is a summer outreach to get more kids on skateboards. The program is possible because of dedicated teens and adults in the community that has gone from 2 sites in 2012 to 6 sites in 2013. The 12 and Under Learn to Skate program is free and aims to build community, intergenerational connections, and make skateparks a place for all ages. This program is unique to Seattle, and pioneers a model of inclusion, leadership, and intergenerational understanding in order to build healthy, fun skateparks for all. Since the summer of 2009, the YES program has taught over 2000 kids how to skateboard.
