ABOUT

We Believe:

EVERYONE HAS VALUE

This is at the core of everything we do. Everyone deserves second chances, love, justice, and a friend. In this world of negativity, we swim upstream; speaking for the silent and standing for the broken.

LEADERSHIP IS ACTION

Its not about how many followers you have, your college degree, or how you look.Making a difference and being a leader is all about action. What did you do today to help others?

IT’S SIMPLE

Making a difference is as simple as taking whatever you love to do and using to help others. You don’t need matching shirts or community service hours to inspire you – you do it because it’s the right thing to do.

“We are out skating and handing out socks to the homeless…it just feels good to give back and do something concrete for my city.”

Dillon Burroughs

Skater/Artist, Skate for Change Kansas City

Here’s how it works:

Across the globe, skaters take a look at what their city needs, and then take action.

Whether it is handing out socks, or cleaning up parks, Skate for Change is all about showing up and giving back.

West Creek, New Jersey

In September of 2018, we elected Zachary Strang as an honor chapter leader of West Creek, New Jersey. Zachary lived his life loving to skate and help others. After his untimely passing, his family has dedicated their time to being active in causes Zach would have been in his honor. We are so lucky to be teaming up with the Strang family on initiatives like our #20kbyXmas drive to put socks on the feet of 20,000 people experiencing homeless before Christmas.

City Leader, Nairobi Kenya

“Since I started skating I have learnt a lot & witnessed the possibilities in this art from change in character to friends and everything. There was not alot of guys skating but lately the scene is full of ambitious people especially kids. The reason I would like to give back is to see the kids being able to skate and stand on their own feet.”

Kevin Scott

Kevin Scott

City Leader, Baltimore Maryland

“Despite the bad reputation baltimore has been given, there is an abundance of culture and new things to try and new ideas sprouting daily. I also really enjoy going out and just getting to meet new people and exchange stories and what not between each other, because you never really know what a person has to say, whether it be a kid, just some lady at the bus stop, or even the less fortunate just asking for some loose change.”
