Partnership: A FUNDACION PATINETERO INC is a non-profit organization created for the purpose of promoting social values, interpersonal relationships, culture and discipline through the new style of sport (art) of the skateboard. In recent years, skateboarding is the second fastest growing sport in the United States after soccer. In ten (10) states of the nation, skateboarding is part of the academic curriculum in public schools, since not all students participate in traditional sports activities in schools. Skateboarder in your School, is a project that aims to help students face the emotional difficulties we all go through at that school stage. Creating a healthy environment for any child or adolescent is a complicated goal for any parent. The influence of video games, social networks and the internet are obstacles to any physical activity or sport. Through years of experience working with children and teenagers, I have seen the benefits of skateboarding.
