SkatePlus is a non-profit project of Shred Your Fears with a mission of promoting health, creativity, and education through skateboarding.
We held our first workshop (Skate+Write) in December 2019 in partnership with Write Pittsburgh and Switch & Signal Skatepark. This event for female-identifying and non-binary teens ages 11-14 combined learning to skateboard with a creative writing workshop led by Shred Your Fears Founder Maya Haptas.
We are launching our next event Skate+Together in November 2021. Skate+Together is a series of free skateboarding workshops at Switch & Signal Skatepark for women and girls to learn to skateboard together.
