CJ’s Skatepark Foundation Programs
Kids Being Kids: A free program that is run four times a year for children and their families affected by cancer. Kids attending this event have been affected by cancer and some are actively undergoing treatment.
5 for $5: To support low-income families who would like to take lessons at CJ’s SKATEPARK, we offer 5 introductory skateboarding lessons for $5. These lessons are one hour in length where children learn the fundamentals of skateboarding.
Youth Mentorship Program: Each year, our skatepark staff mentors a number of at-risk youth instilling confidence, values, and challenging youth to become leaders in the community. For interested youth, we also show them the administrative side of what it takes to run a skatepark, events, and contests so that they can gain and build on skills that will later serve them in the workforce.
Special Needs Lessons: One-on-one lessons for those with special needs (including but not limited to Autism, Asperger’s, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD) are provided at a subsidized rate, and are focused on improving flexibility, dexterity, balance, and fine motor skills.
Special events for low-income families: Throughout the year, we host a number of special events . One group who attends is from North Etobicoke where gang and gun violence is on the rise. We host these open events to introduce children and their families to skateboarding, a relatively inexpensive sport that can be practiced in any outdoor space.
Subsidized camps and lessons for low-income families: For those who cannot afford camp, we subsidize the cost of camps and lessons, and for those who cannot afford transportation, we happily provide it to them.
