skate-aid stands for a holistic, self-determined approach to promoting young people in the framework of the Jugendhilfe, sport, culture and international understanding. Our mission: We make children strong! Since 2009, we have been using the pedagogic power of skateboarding in our worldwide projects. In their orientation phase, it gives children and young people the freedom to create meaning and identity and it helps them to develop into strong individuals on the basis of self-determination and intrinsic motivation. In this way skate-aid provides sustainable socialisation, prevention and peace work, where social grievances and difficult living conditions endanger young people and hinder their development.
