Building skateparks with Tony Hawk’s ‘Skateboard Project’

The Find Your Grind Foundation believes in creating safe places for kids to ‘learn by doing’ and explore their passions.

To further this belief, FYG Foundation is teaming up with The Skateboard Project to support the Chandler Park Skatepark project in Detroit, Michigan, ensuring kids will have a free, safe place to skate.

With 50% of the surrounding community being under the age of 18, FYG Foundation is excited to bring a healthy recreational space that will benefit the neighborhood and create intentional opportunities for community and collaboration in East Detroit.

For many skateboarding youth, the park will become a home-away-from-home and provide access to an environment that celebrates and recognizes skateboarding as a beneficial activity.

In too many places skateboarders get the wrong message from local authorities who limit or outlaw skateboarding and ignore its inherent benefits. Skateparks are the solution – they reduce illicit behavior, provide a safe environment, reduce damage to private property, encourage physical activity, improve mental health, and have a positive economic impact. Every skatepark supports hundreds of kids that might otherwise have nowhere to go.

According to the Tony Hawk Foundation: “Skateparks provide a physical activity for kids not interested in traditional team sports. Community skateparks provide a safe and challenging place for skaters of all levels to develop as athletes. Public skateparks provide healthy activity for kids and help eliminate boredom and drug use”.

In addition to all these benefits, the skatepark will feature “green”, sustainable and eco-friendly skate-able features as well as renewable solar lighting to promote broader environmental awareness. Through this partnership, the Chandler skatepark will break ground in 2020 with an anticipated completion date in mid-2021.

Most recently, FYG Foundation helped launch The FYG Collective – a digital art and technology lab that helps create opportunities for experiential learning for surrounding low-income communities. The FYG Collective provides safe access to digital opportunities, helps build skill sets, and closes the technology gap that exists due to socioeconomic inequality. 

The FYG Collective exists to serve both the established creative community as we well as young people who may be engaging with these technologies and mediums for the first time. All classes, programming, and lab hours are public access, in line with the other spaces and programming of The Bay with intentional opportunities provided to those who need it.
The FYG Collective also houses frequent educational workshops, offering educational opportunities to the creative community that range from instructing on the basics to those wanting to pursue that particular area as a career.

In our partnership with the Bay, we are working to create opportunities where they are needed, widen the lens of possibilities for young people, and empower the local creative community.
