Skateboard to Success is a program that offers skateboards and lessons for underprivileged and at risk kids. This program is run at Unity Skatepark (located in Millennium Park

Studies show the benefits of skateboarding, which include:

  • Learning a new sport

  • Mental health improvement

  • Physical health improvement

  • Focused and goal-oriented

  • Perseverance

  • Enhanced creativity

  • Socialization with other skateboarders

  • And most of all, FUN​

Learning to Skateboard


It is our mission to supply as many kids as possible with skateboards and lessons for this very enriching sport. Along the way, our instructors would also like to introduce uplifting and positive messages that the kids will hopefully spread to others. 

Skateboards and Beanies


Our volunteer instructors are all skateboarders who received so much through this sport that now they want to give back by teaching kids in the hopes that they too will greatly benefit from skateboarding.
