There are many ways to get involved and volunteer with Next Up. We are first and foremost a grassroots foundation started by friends who wanted to give back to our community through a sport we love, “Skateboarding.”
Who volunteers at Next Up:
We are skateboarders, friends of skateboarders, we are young, we are old. Our commonality is our passion for making a difference with kids communities and the environment, all while we represent the skateboard and action sports community, where the sport was born.
Who does Next Up serve:
Mentoring kids and helping expand the sport of skateboarding to underserved communities through our program and providing much needed equipment and apparel to kids who might not get access to it was the reason Next Up Foundation was started.
We also thought, “Wouldn’t it be Great If” by doing the above volunteer work we could not only represent the skateboard and action sports communities by engaging the commitment of giving back, but also serve as a resource for everyone to get involved, so we provide easy online tools for expanded participant involvement.
