Over the last twelve weeks, Project Lifelong has been able to empower more than fifty male and female students through skateboarding; many of which had never stepped foot on a skateboard before. Feelings of confidence, joy, adrenaline and self-expression are a daily norm as skateboarding continues to provide a positive outlet for youth.
Our high school mentors are truly the driving force of this program. These skate mentors have been responsible for redesigning a 15-passenger van, building ramps, and working one-on-one to teach skateboarding to young children. Collectively, these future leaders volunteered more than 300 hours this fall and continue to find passion through giving back. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to Swanston Community Center for making this powerful program possible!
