The volunteering team will have a two-week program where the TRL association will welcome international volunteers to together organize various events and workshops for local youngsters in order to spread the message of equal and non- discriminating leisure activity. Visits in different skate parks create a link between local youth and international volunteers. Together with the active members of the association, the volunteers will organize skateboard trainings and workshop for all levels, with emphasis on beginners. Apart from this, the volunteers will participate in activities to maintain the skate parks, such as tidying the skate parks. Discussions and activities linked to gender equality, discrimination in a sport and in an urban space in general are foreseen.
