Deeply rooted in skate culture, Make Life Skate Life (MLSL) seeks to nurture grassroots skate communities. Since 2013, we have developed community skatepark projects in India, Bolivia, Jordan, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Nepal, Morocco, Iraq and Brazil that have impacted the lives of thousands. Together with local communities, we build safe, accessible, free-of-charge skateparks. After construction of skateparks, we help with the implementation of skate programs that aim to include females, disadvantaged and refugee youth, and use skateboarding as a tool for teaching cross-cultural communication, creative self expression and resilience to underserved youth populations. The goal is that our local partners take full ownership and independently run the projects in the long-term while acquiring enough skills to lead their next projects.
