Calling all young womxn with a passion for skateboarding and a powerful idea to get more girls on boards in Europe!
For the third year in a row, Women Win and Skateistan are teaming up to support womxn’s leadership in skateboarding and inspire the next generation of girls to be empowered, active and healthy.
The ROLL Models programme is designed to support and create visibility for diverse womxn leaders within skateboarding and to fund the projects they’ve designed – so that the next generation of girls can build confidence, community, and life skills on and off their skateboards.
We’re currently seeking applications from young womxn (aged 18-30) who have an idea for a project that will use skateboarding to improve the physical and mental well-being of girls (aged 5-18) and promote gender equity. The ROLL Models programme is a unique opportunity for womxn with a passion for skateboarding to connect with and support each other. We are accepting applications for projects taking place in eight European countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.
For this year, we are excited to announce that as well as recruiting new ROLL Models, we will also be providing renewal grants for ROLL Models from previous years!
Selected ROLL Models will receive:
- A seed-grant of up to €3000 to fund their project idea
- A place at our ROLL Models Leadership Camp in Berlin**
- Support and guidance from Skateistan and Women Win
**Depending on COVID-19 travel restrictions**
The fund prioritizes projects which work with girls (ages 5-18) as their main focus group, however you may apply with a project that includes other target groups. We actively encourage applications from those who identify as trans, non-binary and all other underrepresented groups and communities such as black, indigenous, people of color, LGBTQI+, refugees, migrants and people living with disabilities.
