Bridge to Skate uses skateboarding to transform the lives of youth by creating dynamic new paths to self-confidence, personal empowerment and responsibility for each other and their communities. We hope our youth take control of their lives, using skateboarding as a vehicle for creative expression and a way of owning their own wheels. With ownership comes pride; with pride comes responsibility. And, with support comes a safe and secure organizational structure that enables kids to reach their full potential.
YOUNG ADULT years are a challenge for everyone, regardless of age or socio-economic conditions. Bridge to Skate is based on the idea that skateboarding offers a joyful experience and shared sense of purpose – and that by participating together, youth will develop the skills they need to support each other and their community, and to determine their own destiny.
