This summer we are hosting a longboard building class during summer school. Students will earn ELA, Science, and Math credit, while building a personalized longboard skateboard.
In the longboard program, youth complete a project with personal touches – they can customize the board’s shape and its exterior, through painting and wood burning. The curriculum teaches long-term project planning, goal setting, collaborative learning, and working towards/ achieving personal goals. This program pairs 25 hours of board construction with 15 hours of learning how to ride, skateboard safety & maintenance, rules of the road, and a service learning project. Each student goes home with a fully functional longboard and helmet. This class is a partnership with Urban Boatbuilders.
Our 2021 Summer School will offer additional personalized instruction for students to earn credit, prepare for fall, and work towards graduation.
