Program turns skateboarding’s stigma upside-down

At Skate 4185!, a community-based program in City Heights for youth, kids kids utilize their skateboarding prowess while participating in trash cleanups. The combination of engaging kids in their hobbies while serving the broader community helps keep safe, positive and on task. “What I like about this program is that you get along with people you don’t know, meet new people, and go on field trips. I like when we pick up trash because we set an example for the community.”  Read more at AjA Project.
