Rio Contiguo High School is a Youth Guidance Center within the Juvenile Court School system in Santa Ana, CA. Many of the youth attending this school have affiliations in gangs and/or a history of drug problems. On February 25th, our founder and president, Vinicius “Vina” Tinoco, along with Next Up Vice-president, Andre Genovesi, volunteer Chris Sanchez and our friend and supporter, Pro-skater Felipe Gustavo, had the opportunity to meet and share with these troubled youth our mission at Next Up. We got to inspire and mentor some of those adolescents by talking and skating with them. We are very thankful for Tony Everett from Pure Game Foundation and Connie Marshal from Rio Contiguo for making this awesome event happen! We look forward to future events with these kids! Thank you!
