Our objectives are executed through program logic that has been developed from expertise in community services and aligned with educational research, including the work of Rudolf Dreikurs and William Glasser.

Whilst executed with Skateboarding as the central bridge building tool our team focuses on a working approach founded on 6 “C”s …
We seek to provide this generation with ….
- Connection: Through skateboarding
- Community: That empowers
- Care: For the next generation
- Context: For mentoring
- Creativity: To inspire and enable
- Commitment: To measureable outcomes
The outcomes we work too are measurable in terms of improved educational engagement and reduced truancy. These outcomes in turn lead to greater inclusion, improved employment prospects and reduced dependancy … a hand-up and not a hand-out … by enabling young people to drop in and not out of life in our communities…. The fruit of this work is reflected in the results on our Lives Changed page.
