The project was a success! Thank you to everyone who supported the funding through Kickstarter. There are now five new GRO Riders in NYC with new skateboards, safety gear and the ability to ride. Thank you to Megan Carli and Wearskate for involving the NYC GRO Crew in such a great mission!
“I feel that the inaugural program run this week was a success. The girls were able to mesh well with the other students in the week’s session. The registrants interacted well with the other students, creating what we hope will be friendships that carry beyond the program.The counselors created a space for the girls to confidently ease themselves into the whole process of learning how to skateboard. The girls seemed to adapt comfortably with the program structure of skill building, social bonding with other students, as well as managing the overall general engagement with the Homage Skateboard Academy program successfully.Â “– Omar, Homage Brooklyn
