First Nations

Justin Darrow, First Nations ambassador for Skateboards for Hope, has become an inspiration within a community that has seen extremely hard times and faced incredible adversity. Justin, skateboarding since the age of 12, is a beacon of positivity, providing the children in his community with the tools he cherished as a child and that made him into the man that he is today.

 

Justin is also the first Mohawk to compete in the World Cup Skateboarding Competition held in Montreal, July 15, 2015 and consecutively until August 2019 at Olympic Stadium during the Jackalope Fest. You can find Justin honing his filmmaking skills at most events. Check out his Instagram justin.mojo.darrow and get schooled on everything skateboarding.

Justin has competed in the AM GETTING PAID competition held in Montreal, 2015-2018 at Le Taz Skatepark where he was officially ranked and representing Skateboards For Hope. No pressure, dude! 

New Developments in Nunavik!

You can't get farther north than in Salluit, Nunavik where a new chapter of enthusiastic Cree children are now skateboarding and longboarding thanks to the efforts of Flore Deshayes, Social Worker, who has implemented a Skateboards For Hope project to help youth with their physical and mental health.
