As an MBA student at a major university we are always getting organizing, contributing, or being asked to attend various charity events. This past week one of my classmates was organizing a charity event for an organization I had never heard of called Stoked Mentoring. With the word "Stoked" in the title it immediately grabbed my attention and I started asking some questions and doing some research. What I discovered is that Stoked Mentoring is a non profit action sports organization for at risk youth with the mission of developing Successful Teens with Opportunity, Knowledge, Experience, and Determination through the use of action sports, mentoring and coaching.
The organization is based out of New York City and Los Angeles and was founded by Steve Larosilliere and Sal Masekela who believed that the courage and perseverance needed to learn an action sport would be an ideal way to teach those life skills to at-risk and disadvantaged inner city youth. Their one year comprehensive program
cheap north face jackets sale utilizes core board sports (snowboarding, skateboarding, and surfing) combined with mentoring to give youth necessary life skills to succeed in life.
Both mentors and mentees are screened, trained and matched based on personality, geography and similar interests. Once matched, all mentoring pairs agree to meet a minimum of 4 hours a month, conduct a certain number of sport dates, and attend group activities for one year. Throughout the year, their program managers conduct ongoing training and coach each pair to ensure that they are performing at an optimal level.
The organization provides the following programs:
Skate Mentoring: focuses on communication, networking skills, positive social habits, and community service through skateboarding.
Surf Mentoring: focuses on respect, trust, and understanding tools to overcome fear and build trust through surfing.
Snow Mentoring: focuses on life skills such as goal setting, overcoming obstacles, and resiliency through snowboarding. Falling and getting

Stoked Club:An after school club that takes place at the Stoked Offices to reinforce the life skills learned during the program. Youth are taught presentation skills, career exposure, college prep workshops and more.
Stoked Sistas: A workshop designed to get female Stoked participants to increase self-esteem and self-confidence through action sports.
Red Bull Action Sports Photography: Mentoring pairs are mentored by pro surf and skate photographers during our surf and skate programs. High-end equipment has been donated for this project and the kids work is then displayed in their own show.
Any how, after checking out Stoked Mentoring's website stoked and seeing what a great thing they are doing for disadvantaged youth and Action Sports I got really excited about supporting this organization in any way I can. As the President of the Sports Business Club at the University of Notre Dame we have adopted this organization to be the recipient of all our fundraising and charity efforts. With TGR being a community full of people who are lucky enough to participate in or live an action sports focused existence I thought this would be a perfect venue to help get the word out and find people to support those who aren't so fortunate . . . so people . . . .spread the love and find a way to get invloved!!! Stoked is looking for volunteers, mentors, donations, etc. so if you don't live close to NY or LA there are still a million ways you can help!
