Since 2012, Exposure Skate has been providing a platform for women and girls from around the world to build their power through skateboarding, as our co-founders saw a need for women in skateboarding to be given the same support as their male counterparts. Through the past 7 years, our donors have helped us to provide free and accessible competitions, skate programs, clinics, and community events to thousands of women and girls. Skate Rising is an inclusive program, focused on girls ages 4-18, that holds no-cost, accessible monthly events. Our mission is to teach compassion through service opportunities and empowerment through skateboarding. Skate Rising is Exposure’s youth program that strives to instill confidence and empathy in participants through skateboarding. Our monthly events to encourage girls to be resilient, to get involved in community issues, and to live healthy lifestyles. Each event is centered around a different social/emotional topic that allows us to engage the participants in a learning opportunity. We provide all of the necessary equipment for any girl from any background to try skateboarding for the first time. This year we began holding monthly Adult Women's Clinics as we believe that women of all ages, levels, and abilities should never stop learning, and pushing themselves to something new.
In 2020, Exposure Skate needs your help more than ever to expand programming and grow our vision of promoting female empowerment through the conduit of skateboarding. We would not only like to expand to a new skate Rising location, but also expand both the breadth and depth of our women’s clinic programming! We need your help to breakdown detrimental female stereotypes, build confidence, empathy, community, and healthy lifestyles through skateboarding!
