“These events are amazing! My girls had been wanting to skate for a long time but were too intimidated at the skate parks to really try anything. Going to these events has been a game changer for them! Having a bunch of other girls who are skating, along with a few pros to help them get started, has given them the confidence they needed to skate. All of this, plus an opportunity to think about and serve other people in need. We love skate rising!”
“I am so happy we found Skate Rising. The girls learn how to skate in a safe environment while learning about relevant issues in their community and how they can make a difference. It is so great to see my daughter help the little ones with their skating and make new friends each month.”
“As a father of two girls, it’s very important to me that they feel like they can do and be anything they want in life. Skate Rising instills this in our girls in a number of ways. Each month they are able to see the progress they’ve made from practice and dedication. They’re able to see and hear from other women in the community that are making a difference through service and hard work. Skate Rising is such a fun organization to be involved in while developing all those qualities we want our children to have!”
“Skating really can pull people of all walks of life. This has been so fun for me to be able to introduce my daughter to what’s possible, then make it real in the same moment. Thanks for holding these events in Phoenix, they have helped her progression tremendously.”
Skate Rising is an inclusive program, focused on girls ages 4-18, that holds free monthly events. Our mission is to teach compassion through service opportunities and empowerment through skateboarding. Each event, which is centered around a selected theme relating to empowerment or community service, incorporates an educational component or small service project to engage the girls, before the skate clinic. The program offers all safety equipment, trained coaches, educational supplies, partnership organization, and free raffles. We aim to have each girl walk away feeling empowered from overcoming their fears, feeling supported by a group of like-minded girls, and feeling a sense of responsibility for their community.
EXPOSURE® is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women through skateboarding. We create opportunities for women by organizing events that provide all-female Professional and Amateur skateboarding competitions, learn-to-skate clinics and wellness education. Proceeds from our events support survivors of domestic violence.
