INSPIRING YOUTH TO OVERCOME CHALLENGES THROUGH BOARDSPORTS
Our youth development program revolves around a six-week curriculum that uses boardsports to teach life skills and increase self-esteem in our participants. Our six weekly themes: patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect and pride, provide a framework for learning and personal growth. We use our time getting ready to introduce the weekly themes through an activity, and reinforce the concept during our time on a board. This structure allows participants to make meaningful connections to the curriculum while experiencing the joy of riding on a board. All necessary equipment and instruction comes at no cost to our participants.
