Programs to build capacity within our communities
Longboarding is a challenging individual sport, which has a strong connection to mental wellbeing and is very popular in young communities. These and other aspects make it the perfect tool to promote social inclusion and confidence in disengaged young people.
Our programs can be tailored to the community's needs including mental health and mentoring components. Get in touch to find out more!
What our clients say:
We include longboarding workshops as part of our Get Set for Work program. We find that the workshops are a great way to stretch our comfort zones a little. While many of us feel nervous about getting on a longboard, Anna creates a safe, supportive space to give it a go. The feedback from the young people is always positive. One young person said that they ‘learnt how to be confident’. The workshops provide a fun, hands-on experience that builds resilience, self-confidence and a sense of achievement. We love Longboard Family Inc!
