Skateboards For Hope

Skateboards For Hope invites you to be part of the sharing community where you can donate your time, funds or used skateboards to underprivileged youth. Your donation impacts a child's life directly. Learn how by watching our videos or visiting our social media. It's pretty cool and we hope it will inspire you.

Watch our TEDxTalk to learn more about how skateboards can give hope and break the cycle of poverty. (9 minutes)
 
"The idea of giving a child something like a skateboard to encourage them to take risks, become problem solvers, and build a community of friends with similar interests in an activity they might not have been exposed to other wise is something we try to achieve with help from donors like you."
 
Our story started in Cuba when Founder, Betty Esperanza gifted her skateboard to a young boy who would later become the number 1 skateboarder in Cuba. This random gift of kindness has created a skateboard community worldwide where used skateboards are collected, recycled and then donated to youth to start leadership and entrepreneurial projects to break the cycle of poverty.

This sport and lifestyle is a remedy to depression and isolation. Ask any skateboarder how skateboarding has changed their lives. Watch this video from VICE about our Fresh Hope Skateboard Art Collective: (3 minutes)
 
We are excited to share the joy of skateboarding by featuring our BECOME AN AMBASSADOR project. Youth of all ages strive to make a difference and Skateboards For Hope has developed a movement to support children worldwide using social media. Here's a glimpse of a cool video of some of our Ambassadors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJqsYYKgeDI
