Did you know that Skateistan doesn't actually build skateparks? They run programs that combine education with skateboarding for children aged 5-17 years. In the countries Skateistan works in, they provide the safe space for this to happen, they call them, Skate Schools.
Right now, Skateistan's first Skate School is in construction in Johannesburg, combining a 500 meter squared skate park with shipping container classrooms. It's going to be spectacular and the kids can't wait. Find out the latest here!
At our Skate and Create program, students get to combing educational arts with skateboarding, learning both in the classroom and on a board. It's the perfect combination, as students come to skate and stay for education. Each semester the program concentrates on a different topic, at which students will learn about kindess, the universe, environment and nature.. plus much much more. Learning through play helps kids to engage with each other and the environment around them.
