One of my favorite charity and community service organizations—Skatistan—has been doing some amazing work since 2007 using skateboarding as a tool for empowering youth, to create new opportunities and the potential for change. You can see more about them at http://skateistan.org. They've been doing a stupendous job of it. This inspiring video show's how girls have really taken to skating, and it's changing their life little by little in big ways. A must watch.
