SAND SISTERS

DEFY GRAVITY: MENTORING SKATE DAY, AUGUST 2018

Together with local organization Sand Sisters, GRLSWIRL community members volunteered to teach young girls how to skateboard while inspiring self-esteem and creating lasting friendships.  

Each GRLSWIRL volunteer was paired up with a Sand Sister girl through out the day to show her the basics of skateboarding and create their own artwork out of blank skate decks donated by Carver Skateboards. Girls used magazines to create vision board collages on their blank skate decks.

An amazing day filled with laughs, friendship and skating!
