A fundamental component of infusing hope in our youth is educating them. An education is a powerful weapon. An education is something that can’t be taken away. An education is a golden doorway to freedom. By educating our youth we empower them to create a new trajectory for their lives.
Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
At Knox Extreme Sports we also realize that education is confused with the traditional system of educating our children in schools, and while we believe in the value of our children attending school we also recognize that learning can come in many forms. We are partnering with the schools, with programs such as Project Grad, with parents, with other non-profits and with children to provide on-going after school and summer school tutoring.
Knox Extreme Sports seeks to find unique means and methods to educate through tutoring. Action sports themselves open up a field of educational opportunities in physics, geometry, engineering, applied sciences and in trade skills such as metal and wood working and in repairs of bikes and skateboards. At knxsports we will be combining all of these opportunities in developing programs where kids will be encouraged and challenged, in a unique and loving environment.
“My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more intelligent and more educated than college professors.” – Maya Angelou
We are creating organized communities of hope.
