We're an award-winning non-traditional non-profit.
We feel the courage and perseverance needed to learn to surf, skate or snowboard are a swell medium to teach those life skills to inner-city youth.
Our mission is to promote personal development, academic achievement and healthy living to under-served youth through action sports culture.
Oh, and we ran the first Snowboard Mentor program in the country in 2005, the year we started.
- Since 2005 STOKED has provided innovative + effective programs to over 3,500 at-risk youth in New York City and Los Angeles
- 100% high school graduation rate for kids in STOKED for more than two consecutive years
We work with at-risk and disadvantaged high school students from under-served areas in NYC and LA. Through teaching kids how to Skateboard, Snowboard and Surf we teach them life lessons that help them to become more motivated with a positive outlook on life.
