"Work in skateboarding is an educational video website that shows the diversity of jobs in skateboarding, their accessibility and how similar roles can apply to other sport industries.
It’s going to be a resource for kids who are beginning to plan their career paths and are unaware of all the different job options within skateboarding.
The main goal of the website is to invest in the next generation of skateboarding, nurturing their growth and creativity and supplying them with information they can use to become a part of the industry." - Samantha Chami
This awesome idea and resource still needs help becoming a reality, for more info and ways you can help visit indiegogo.com/workinskateboardingwebsite.
