Hundreds of Moroccan Youth Empowered by "Skate For All" Skateboarding Program

Skate For All program trainers from the "Blast Skate" club.

 


 

Activity Description

The U.S. Embassy in Rabat in collaboration with a local youth association conducted a six-city caravan of day-long skate workshops for younger, first-time skaters, and competitions for older, more accomplished skaters.

 

Over 300 young people attended the workshops, about 100 participated in the competition for older skaters, and at least 150 attended as audience members, including many parents of the participants.

The Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer attended the entire program, addressed the participants and audience at each stop, and even participated as a trainer when needed, reactivating his long-dormant skateboarding skills.
