Check out a video from an Askate x House of Vans event from the past to get an idea of what it's all about!
We will have a check in for volunteers the day of!
If you are unable to attend, please let us know so we can fill your spot! Without the proper amount of volunteers we will not have enough people working with the kids.
The event is from 10am to 1pm.
Set up begins at 9am and families will start arriving around 9:45am.
SKATE VOLUNTEERS: You will be guiding, assisting, making sure the kids have fun and are safe on the board! Some children are Non-Verbal, so patience is key! Some children may be new to our events… patience and compassion is very important! The goal is to show these children an amazing experience during their time with us. Remember, their parents are watching and this is just as exciting and important to them, as it is the children!
There may be children with food allergies attending which you will be able to recognize by a sticker indicator that we will put on the back of their shirts. We will show and tell you more info in detail the day of the event!
NON SKATE VOLUNTEERS: We have numerous areas of need for non-skate volunteers! (registration, fitting helmets, managing drink and food table!)
We look forward to meeting you, and appreciate the time you are willing to dedicate to helping these amazing children! If you have any other questions, or know of any other volunteers who may be interested
(WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS)…please feel free to contact us!
Skateboarding is known to "heal the soul" but for our special kids it is so much more! Skateboarding offers many components of Occupational Therapy believe it or not focusing on motor, vestibular, and proprioceptive skills. In addition our program allows these children to be social on their terms.
We teach the children how to skateboard and teach the parents how to incorporate skateboarding into the lives of their families.
