The project

Muenster

In Münster, we have been conducting pedagogically supervised workshops for many years. In 2016, we launched a regular offer at the Skaters Palace as part of our workshop series "Across the Bo(a)rders". Kids and teenagers with migration backgrounds can experience appropriate activities for their age through pedagogically supervised workshops. With exercises to strengthen group spirit, to handle the skateboard safely and to learn the German language automatically, the project is well received by young people.

The project was expanded in 2019 and is now accessible to all kids from Münster.

The workshops are currently available on Mondays (5:15 pm - 6:45 pm) and Wednesdays (4:15 pm - 5:45 pm) at the Skaters Palace.

Munich

From 2012 to 2018 skate-aid e.V. München offered skateboarding as an open, pedagogically supervised sports program for kids and teenagers with migration backgrounds. The offer was especially for young people from the surrounding area. One of its objectives was cultural integration.  But strengthening the self-esteem of the young people and developing their social skills through social interaction was equally important. The project was discontinued at the end of 2018.

Project duration: 2012 - 2018

Würzburg

In Würzburg, skate-aid e.V. München worked together with the SC Heuchelhof  from 2016 to 2018.  As part of the "Nightkick" program of the SC Heuchelhof, skateboarding is carried out as an open, pedagogically supervised sports program, in addition to football and basketball.The offer was especially for young people from the district and its objectives were the cultural integration of the young people, by developing their social skills and strengthening  their self-esteem. The project was handed over completely to the SC Heuchelhof at the end of 2018.

Project duration: 2016 - 2018

The projects in Munich and Würzburg were carried out by skate-aid e.V. München. The Titus Dittmann Foundation started the Münster project. It was taken over by skate-aid international in May 2019.
