SkateQilya Launch

Our friends over at SkateQilya have just launched their new website!

SkateQilya is a youth empowerment program that uses skateboarding as a hook to teach art, community building and leadership skills to young people in the West Bank district of Qalqilya.

SkateQilya began as three-week summer camp in which young girls and boys from the city of Qalqilya and neighbouring village of Jayyous came together for the first co-ed athletic program in the district.

We're looking forward to working with SkateQilya on future projects to support skateboarding in Palestine - stay tuned for more details in 2017!
