We took skate lessons into the after school curriculum with local LA organization Think Lab at Mark Twain Middle School in West LA. 20 GRLSWIRL members volunteered their time and skills to teach 20 young girls from the ages of 8-12 the basics of skateboarding. It was an afternoon filled with bonding, learning and fun times. The girls were skating rings around us by the time we left!
ThinkLab help children increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values, cultivate empathy, and develop their capacity to understand and manage emotions.
