The HHF Legacy Program concluded this month with a screening of “Minding the Gap,” a critically acclaimed documentary about the lives three skaters in a rust belt town in Illinois. This event culminated six months of life skills workshops at House of Vans, informal skate sessions around the city, monthly one-on-ones with coach/mentors, and a one-week stay at Camp Woodward action sports camp. Among the highlights from the program were workshops on HHF’s Core Values/NYC Skate History, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Identifying One’s Own Core Values/Purpose, Career Paths in the Skateboarding Industry, Defining Success and Setting Intentions, and skills exploration in film, photography, music, visual art and design, and STEM. A big thank you to our partners House of Vans, Laureus USA, Up2Us Sports, and American Chai Trust for making these enriching activities possible 45 youth.
