Become part of our committee

Longboard Family Inc. is a small newly established non profit organisation based in Brisbane. Our vision is focused on purpose, people, and possibilities, through longboarding. We aim to build community, build the individuals identity and mental health, and build options for them, through teaching them new skills.

Our programs combine the opportunity to learn longboarding with mindfulness as we promote mental health. We run extensive school holiday programs through Brisbane City Council's Active and Healthy Program as well as Logan City Council's KRANK School Holiday Program and Ipswich City Council's Active Breaks Program. During school terms we promote mental wellbeing at schools with our Longboarding and Mindfulness programs for young people.

To ensure our programs benefit those in need of skill development or support we focus on young people at risk and/or young people experiencing ill mental health. We do this in collaboration with our partners at BABI Youth & Family Service, and headspace in Woolloongabba, Warwick and Southport.

Our wonderful small nonprofit organisation is still growing, and we are now looking for a Treasurer and a Vice-President, preferably experienced, to join our board of members. To ensure financial integrity and sustainability, being the Treasurer on our board requires certain skills.
