“Next Up” is a grassroots foundation that was started by people who love skateboarding and who are dedicated to enhancing: The lives of kids & teens, our communities and our environment through skateboarding and action sports. Next Up Foundation provides after-school and summer mentoring programs that teach life skills through skateboarding.
Next Up foundation is all about people getting involved; from volunteering, to mentoring, to fundraising, to donating or helping build a skateboard park. It’s all about giving back and being selfless. Here is a quote from a teen participant: “I never had a dream, I started skating and wanted to be a Pro, but now my dream is to be like Vina (founder of Next Up) and keep Next Up Foundation alive forever.”
