Thank you so much in your interest in SKATE FOR CHANGE! Please read carefully below for next steps!
We would LOVE to get you guys on board as an official SFC Chapter!
Getting started is a relatively easy process. Here's what you need to do:
Get some dedicated friends, kids, parents, or teachers to join your cause! We suggest not skating unless you have at least four people. One of the things we love about this project is that it changes peoples' view on skateboarding as a whole, so the bigger the crew, the bigger the impact! If you don’t have that many skateboarders, feel free to encourage people to ride bikes, scooters, or even walk - the most important part is that you guys are in a group and giving back TOGETHER.
Commit within the group to go out AT LEAST twice a month! We suggest Sundays - utilize #skateforchangesunday on social media to match the rest of the organization.
Every member of the group simply skates, bikes, walks with a backpack on - we ask that you fill the backpacks with water and clean socks. If you wish to give out more, we suggest non-perishable goods (canned tuna, canned chicken, soup, etc). The only rule we have is DON'T STOP SKATING UNTIL YOUR BAGS ARE EMPTY!
We also require that you start an Instagram with the name of your city (ex: @skateforchangeCHICAGO, @DenverSFC, @SFC_SanFran) and use that platform to take pictures of your ventures and share them with your community. When this is set up, please FOLLOW @skateforchange on Instagram and Skate For Change on Facebook and TAG us when you are out so we can help empower and encourage you and other chapters! We've found that Instagram is has been the most successful in communicating and spreading news with all chapters.
That’s it! It's that easy!
