CAREER EXPLORATION

Pilot Program Under Development

The HHF Skate Industry Career Exploration Program will be a three-part program designed to introduce former HHF Skate Camp Scholarship recipients to careers in the skateboarding industry.

Part one will consist of a career panel that includes a pro skateboarder, former skaters working in different areas of the industry, as well as former skaters working in a variety of careers outside the industry.

Part two will consist of a series of after-school visits to local skate industry businesses where a member of the staff will provide a brief tutorial on an aspect of the work they do (i.e., design and production of clothing, footwear and/or skateboards; marketing and PR; event planning; photography and video production; etc.).

Part three will consist of a semester-long internship at a local NYC skate company.
