Help for young people facing disdvantage

IdeaSpies skateboard (1)

What to do when young people are facing disadvantage-not bothering to go to school, not achieving, living where life expectancy is 10 years below other suburbs in the same city? Try building something like The Works in Hunslet, Leeds, UK. The aspirations and expectations of young people in this area have been raised by installing a world class, state-of-the-art skatepark. It literally puts kids at the centre of everything, makes them want to be there, and enables the creation of education services around the Skatepark. http://theworksskatepark.co.uk/skatepark/
