Skate Rising is a free, fun, and empowering skateboarding program for girls run by EXPOSURE Skate. Each month, participating girls learn about a need in the community, help to address the need through a community service project and take part in a skate clinic run by industry professionals. Next month’s theme is “empowering from within.” Tea Collection will be sponsoring this special Skate Rising event, called Beyoutiful, Beyounique, Beyourself, on April 14 with the goal of celebrating and empowering youth.

The event will feature talks from Tea Collection co-founder Leigh Rawdon and professional skateboarder and EXPOSURE Skate co-founder Amelia Brodka, clothes from Tea Collection’s new line, the opportunity to create a vision board, and skateboarding clinics with coaching from professionals including Neal Mims.

Beyoutiful, Beyounique, Beyourself is open to all girls ages 4 to 18. It will take place on Saturday, April 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Encinitas Community Skate Plaza, 429 Santa Fe Dr. RSVP at www.facebook.com/skaterising.
