In 2002, SA skate champ Dallas Oberholzer took time out from the international skate scene and headed for Isithumba, KwaZulu-Natal. There he started the Indigo Youth Movement, which seeks to unite young people through skateboarding, mentoring and community development.
Dallas mobilised community members to help build an epic skate park where local children were taught to skateboard. This kept them off the streets and sparked in them a passion for sport, as well as solid friendships with each other. The project is now a structured programme that runs every weekday afternoon and includes skills development in art, music, dance, film and photography. It also educates the 50-60 youngsters who participate on issues of health and safety.
The Indigio Youth Movement is one of the many projects of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation of South Africa. Discovery, the Foundation's country patron, is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of young people and uplifting society through the power of sport.
