Skate Like A Girl




We're building over PAX*1 skate boards to support underserved youth

About the cause: Kids need skateboarding. Studies have consistently shown that kids are less likely to do drugs, more likely to stay in school, and have a growth mindset when skateboarding is introduced into their lives. Skate Like a Girl is working to empower young people, especially young women, to grow into strong, confident leaders who promote and implement social equity.

About the event: We’re building skateboards! First, we’ll hear from Skate Like a Girl and see the importance of skateboarding and community in children’s lives. The organization will then walk you through how to build your board step-by-step answering questions along the way.

WeHero will provide and ship the materials and tools to build a skateboard from the ground up directly to your doorstep. Your box will also include a return shipping label.

The boards will then be distributed to kids that truly need them to participate in Skate Like A Girl programming or to foster care centers!

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
