International Women's Day is an important celebration for Skateistan. Our programs are not gender biased and neither is skateboarding, so half of our students are girls, half of them are boys. Every day we celebrate how skateboarding is a hook for engaging at-risk youth and providing education at our Skate Schools around the world, but once a year, we particularly celebrate the opportunities it has given girls. The opportunity for education, learning through play and to develop life skills for a better future. So, here are 4 reasons, from our Skate Schools around the world, why we are celebrating International Women's Day.
