Your Skate for Change Action Plan


1) Research

First ask: What issues is your city facing? If homelessness is an issue, where do those people sleep? and what items do they need?

Secondly, search the map below for your city to see if a Skate for Change leader already exists in your city!


2) Skate

Plan an outing

If you would like to host a Skate for Change City outing with your school, business, or church click the button below!

Join/Start a Chapter

Want to take it one step further? Become your city’s OFFICIAL Chapter Leader!

If a chapter already exists, hit them up! If you click on the icon a box will pop up and give you some contact options for the chapter leader in your city.

If you don’t see a chapter in your city, fill out this five-minute form to become the leader of your own chapter!

3) Non-Skaters

We are stoked to have you on our team! ALL chapters are happy to have people who bike, scoot, rollerblade – as long as your helping others, no one cares what you are riding!

Stay tuned tour social media to get on board with our other annual initiatives such as raising socks or handing out hot meals. These are great opportunities and don’t require skating!


4) Post and Donate

To keep doing what we do we need support! Help us out by spreading the word, sharing our page, and gathering donations!

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.

100+ chapters have sprung up over the past six years, and just in the past three months 27 chapters have popped up around the globe! This network of do-gooders has created massive impact by caring for the marginalized on their streets – speaking for the silent, standing for the broken. #SkateforChange
