Applications for ROLL Models now open!

Calling all young womxn with a passion for skateboarding and a powerful idea to get more girls on boards in Europe!

For the second year in a row, Skateistan and Women Win are teaming up to support female leadership in skateboarding and inspire the next generation of girls to be empowered, active and healthy.

The ROLL Models programme is designed to support and create visibility for diverse womxn leaders within skateboarding and to fund the projects they’ve designed – so that the next generation of girls can build confidence, community, and life skills on and off their skateboards. ROLL Models is supported through Skateistan’s Goodpush Alliance, a knowledge-sharing platform for the social skateboarding sector.

We’re currently seeking applications from young womxn (ages 18-30) who have an idea for a project that will use skateboarding to improve the physical and mental well-being of girls (ages 5-18) and promote gender equity. The ROLL Models programme is a unique opportunity for womxn with a passion for skateboarding to connect with and support each other.

This year, the geographic scope of the programme has been expanded to three new countries – Spain, Italy and France – in addition to the five countries that participated in 2020 (Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, the UK, and Belgium).

Selected ROLL Models candidates will receive:

  • A place at the online ROLL Models Leadership Camp
  • Eligibility to receive a grant up to €3000 to fund their idea
  • Support and guidance from Skateistan and Women Win

Find out more and apply here. Deadline: 28 February.
