This grant is being written for the Gone Boarding program at Truckee High School. The programs originators describe Gone Boarding as follows: “Students in the Gone Boarding class work in groups. They design, construct, and learn to ride all types of boards including: surfboards, snowboards, skateboards/long boards, stand up paddle boards, wake surfboards, and wake boards. Students also take part in service projects involving younger students through mentoring relationships built around action sports, and partner with the community to make an impact, both locally and globally.”
This grant is being written to purchase industry standard skate veneer so that students will be able to use domain specific vocabulary when communicating with experts in the field.
