Stoked’s mission is to empower youth from under-served communities to achieve a more successful future by providing programs based in action sports culture that result in personal development, academic achievement, positive relationships, and a healthy lifestyle. Since its inception in 2005, Stoked has provided unique and innovative programs to over 800 at-risk youth in New York City and Los Angeles. With your help, Stoked will continue to grow and diversify its programs, exposing a greater number of youth and their mentors to action sports as a means to develop and foster resiliency, determination and success. The Stoked Mentoring experience provides a positive and meaningful impact on the lives of our mentors, mentees, students and volunteers; allowing them to experience the challenges of learning a new sport, the joys that come with mastering a skill, and the nurturing aspect of the mentoring relationship.
Stoked works primarily with at-risk 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. With a 100% high school graduation rate for kids in Stoked we're proud to be able to continue to help kids all over better themselves and the world they live in.
