The Power of Skate

By: Next Step High School

The Power of Skate is a student-led project that is built around environmental sustainability and conservation. We create skateboards and goods that are centered around what’s important to us and the world at large.

In The Power of Skate program, students create their own brand that engages in energy conservation topics that are important to them. In turn, they create brands that promote their cause. Students explore the fundamentals of manufacturing, marketing, and design to create brand assets and merchandise such as T-shirts, skateboards that provide social commentary and awareness on student chosen energy conservation issues facing the local community, society, and the globe. The project culminates with each student being provided an opportunity to curate a real-world product launch and pop-up sale in the local community with proceeds helping local conservation efforts.
