Freedom Skate Park Partners with HomeFront to Give Away 30 Boards to At-Risk Youth

Freedom Skate Park Partners

On Saturday, November 23, Freedom Skate Park will welcome a group of approximately 30 Trenton-area youth participating in HomeFront programs to their public, indoor skate park in the Roebling Wire Works building (675 S. Clinton Avenue, Trenton NJ) for the first of four “Grom-A-Rama” Board Giveaway events they will host this winter as part of the organization’s Trenton Winter Skateboarding Program, run in partnership with the City of Trenton. Youth participating in the event will learn the basics of skating and receive a skateboard of their own to take home.

What: Building on a successful pilot program last winter, Freedom Skate Park is partnering with the City of Trenton Department of Recreation, Culture, and Natural Resources to provide the only skate park in Trenton and the only indoor skate park in the state of New Jersey.

Saturday’s Grom-A-Rama event will give approximately 30 at-risk youth in HomeFront programs the opportunity to learn the basics of skateboarding. At the beginning of the event, youth will be separated into small groups and paired with volunteer skate coaches who will walk them through the basics of skating. After a break for a healthy snack, the youth will then engage in supervised free skate. At the end of the event, every child will take home their own skateboard to practice at home and share skating with their friends.

When: 12:00 PM on Saturday November 23, 2019.

Where: Roebling Wire Works Building (675 S. Clinton Avenue, Trenton NJ)

About Freedom: Skateboarding is an incredible activity that not only keeps youth physically active, but also teaches them critical life lessons about creative thinking, goal-setting, and follow-through while welcoming them into a diverse and supportive community. Freedom is an all-volunteer 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to giving more people the opportunity to learn the valuable life lessons skateboarding teaches by providing safe indoor spaces for skaters of all ages and skill levels to practice and connect with other members of the skate community.

Freedom’s Trenton Winter Skateboarding Program provides the only skate park in Trenton and the only public, indoor skate park in the state of New Jersey. For the 2019-2020 Winter Skateboarding Program, Freedom Skate Park is open to the public from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM every Saturday from November 2, 2019 through February 29, 2020. All events are free for Trenton residents. More information and a full event schedule is available at www.freedomnj.org/winter_skate.
