Stoked Sessions Two - Zoo York x Giant x Stoked

Stoked Mentoring is a NYC/LA 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that I really believe in and actively promote among my friends and community. They use skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing as mentoring tools for at-risk youth here in nyc and in la. By combining a stellar mentoring program with a boardsport-based curriculum (for both mentor and mentee) to teach self-awareness and community building, Stoked is at the forefront of this non-conventional mentoring approach. I have been serving on their advisory board since last year and I am excited to see where we go this year.

On June 6th at Pink Elephant, Zoo York will hold a fundraiser and release a limited edition board and t-shirt designed by Mike Giant to benefit the Stoked Mentoring 2007 season. If you are in NYC, I urge you to contribute and help us expand our programs and outreach.

Tickets are $40/advance and $50/door. Purchase tickets for the fundraiser here.

If you are interested in volunteering or contributing in ANY way, whether you want to be a mentor, teach surfing or have other contacts that you think can help our organization, please contact info(at)stokedmentoring.org.
