Operated by Goodpush, the ROLL Models programme is designed to support and create visibility for diverse women leaders within skateboarding and to fund the projects they’ve designed — so that the next generation of girls and gender-diverse youth can build confidence, community, and life skills on and off their skateboards. Through a partnership with Women Win, Goodpush offer ROLL Models grantees a seed-grant of up to €3000 to fund their project idea, a place at the annual Leadership Camp in Berlin, and support and guidance from Skateistan and Women Win. One of our 2023 grantees was Skate Heaven.
Based in Edegem, Belgium, Skate Heaven is a indoor skating hall which offers skateboarding, inline skate and scooter lessons. Their goal is to provide a safe space and a community for practitioners of all extreme sports together.
