Skate Like A Girl

A WeHero DIY Volunteer Event

What is Skate Like A Girl?

About the cause: Kids need skateboarding. Studies have consistently shown that kids are less likely to do drugs, more likely to stay in school, and have a growth mindset when skateboarding is introduced into their lives. Skate Like a Girl is working to empower young people, especially young women, to grow into strong, confident leaders who promote and implement social equity.

What we’ll do: We’re building skateboards! First we’ll watch a video on the history of Skate Like a Girl and see the importance of skateboarding and community in children’s lives. WeHero will provide the materials and tools to build a skateboard from the ground up. Once your boards is complete, give it your autograph and take a photo with the provided polaroid camera. The boards will then be distributed to kids that truly need them!

How It Works

WeHero DIY events are designed to be easy while maximizing impact.

We Box It Up

Have Your Event

We provide instructions, a video, and a pre-event call just to make sure you’re ready to go. Don’t worry, it’s easy and our team is always available for support!

Send It Back

We provide pre-paid shipping labels and boxes to make shipping everything back easy. Once the event is over, we send thank you letters and photos to each of your team members.

    After booking your event, you are assigned a WeHero event coach to support you with all items related to your event. We’re here to make sure your event is perfect!

  • Polaroid Cameras
    These kids are always so excited and moved that someone thought of them, and gave them a skateboard. Because this is so special to them, we send a Polaroid camera to take pictures to share of your team as they put the boards together.

    Shipping is easy! Attach the pre-paid shipping labels and UPS will pick your package up the day after your event.
  • Sign-in Form
