Bridging Relationships with the Youth of Compton through Skateboarding

Recently, the Compton Sheriff's Youth Activities League (YAL) partnered with Bridge to Skate and Nike SB to take some of our Compton youth to different parts of the county for the 'Go Skate Day'.

Nike treated the kids with food and some cool Nike gear. Bridge to Skate, a nonprofit headed by Chantelle Heroux, has partnered with the YAL for the last 2 years. She provides skateboard lessons, free boards and mentors many youth at the YAL and the greater Compton area.

Check out the video by Nike documenting their day. #NikeSB #LASD Thank you Chantelle, Bridge to Skate, and Nike for making such a positive difference in our community.
