Insurance and equipment for 2016

Help us to bring the positive aspects of the skateboarding experience to children with autism and special needs.

Get On Board offers workshops free of charge where instructors work with children one-on-one in a non-competitive, fun, healthy and safe environment. All equipment, and pads are provided.

Insurance  and pads are one of our most costly and most important expenses. Our insurance is due June 2016. Please help us pay this. Since, we are a registered 501(c)3 organization your donation is tax deductable.

We've seen children flourish. Generally, our events are booked to maximum copacity within 36 hours of announcement.

For the first time in my son’s life I can proudly say that he does not have any needed support other than what is place at school. Get On Board became such a significant role in my son’s life that his case manager at CMU made it a part of his treatment plan.
-- Valerie B

Lessons are run by competent, experienced and well-trained instructors who are both compassionate and knowledgeable.

We have been to a number of events. Each time my son has had a different instructor, all of which have shown him patience and encouragement. He is not a huge fan of “new”, but he always leaves with a smile on his face.
