Mission Statement

Stoked Mentoring is an action sports mentoring organization with the mission of developing "Successful Teens with Opportunities, Knowledge, Experiences and Determination."

Description

Bringing together " at-risk" youth and successful professional adults to learn a new non-traditional sport, Stoked programs serve as the groundwork and means for enhancing mentoring relationships and introduces coaching skills and tools that elicit the best from both parties. Stoked Mentoring is a unique organization that develops innovative programs exposing " at risk" youth and their mentors to action sports as a means to develop and foster resiliency, determination and success. Responsible for developing the curriculum for each mentoring program/ season, Stoked will recruit and train program mentors and teachers/coaches, hand-match mentor and mentee, manage the mentoring relationship for optimal results and oversee follow up post-season. The current programs are targeted towards teens 13 - 17 years old. Through hands-on partnerships with social service agencies, Stoked currently offers three program options, Snow Mentor, Skate Mentor and Surf Mentor. Each program is offered during a supporting season (i.e. SnowMentor during the winter/ prime ski season) and utilizes the challenges and victories of each sport to encourage a close bond between the mentoring pair, while encouraging communication, commitment and perseverance.
