Amber from WSTW has been working with us at Free Movement Skateboarding for four months now and has fine-tuned our female focussed delivery. I cannot do justice to Amber’s devotion to the young people we work with, she commits all she can to their development in and out of sessions. I have always had confidence in skateboarding’s capacity to boost self-esteem in disadvantaged groups, but WSTW’s women’s program does this at a rate unseen elsewhere. These girls have a clearer understanding of their bodies, boundaries, consent, health and so much more. They hold their own amongst the boys in the mixed sessions I teach at, and I’ve seen their confidence sky rocket in an environment that normally hinders that. Young displaced women newly arrived in Europe have challenges ahead we struggle to imagine, but the ground work WSTW have put in will help them thrive.
