Hi! 

Thank you for supporting Getaboard!

Getaboard aka the Getaboard Foundation, is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Orlando, Florida.

Getaboard's mission is to positively impact & empower at-risk and homeless children through action sports, art and education.

Since 2003, we have taught over 6,000 kids how to surf, skate and create art!

In 2011, Getaboard partnered with the Coalition For The Homeless to provide free skateboarding lessons for the children that live at the homeless shelter.

Getaboard helps homeless children use skateboarding as a positive tool for self expression and self empowerment as they experience the harsh realities of living in homelessness.

This program has been highly successful in making a powerful impact in the lives of the children we serve.

Our Getaboard Outreach program consists of a 4-week skate clinic, conducted once per week, that teaches the basics of skateboarding: parts, maintainence and how to ride a skateboard.

During this time, children are, also, taught the basic principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at work while riding a skateboard.

At the end of the 4-week skate clinic, the children are given a written and riding- SKATE TEST, to ensure that they understand how a skateboard works, how to maintain a skateboard and how to ride a skateboard.

Once a child has passed the Skate Test and earned their Getaboard Skate Certificate, they are awarded their own skateboard to KEEP!

This simple act of achievement and acknowledgement among peers, empowers a child to transform themsleves (and their negative self talk) from being labeled as homeless or underprivilged to calling themselves a skater, athlete or innovator- help empower a homeless child through skateboarding!

Please help Getaboard bring a smile to homeless children through skateboarding- DONATE TODAY!

Thank you for your support! 

Getaboard!
