ROLL Models Winners Announced

Women Win and Skateistan recently launched the ROLL Models programme, aimed at supporting female leadership in skateboarding, promoting gender equity, and inspiring the next generation of girls to be empowered, active and healthy.

During this challenging global crisis caused by Covid-19, Women Win remains, more than ever, strongly committed to protect and empower adolescent girls and young women. That is why we are proud to bring this good news in these tough times.

30 ROLL Models will coach girls (5-18 years-old) to get rolling in Belgium, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands and the UK. Each ROLL Model will participate in a Leadership Development programme, focused on learning how to design and deliver a sports programme for girls, with excellence. Each ROLL Model will also receive a seed grant (up to €3000) to support with transforming her project idea into reality.
