STOKED, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in 2005 by Steve Larosiliere and Sal Masekela, on the belief that the courage and perseverance needed to learn how to skateboard, snowboard, and surf would be an ideal way to teach life skills to youth from disadvantaged urban communities. STOKED's mission is to promote personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living to underserved youth through action sports culture. STOKED operates in both New York City and Los Angeles, providing afterschool, action sports, community service, and mentoring programs, and has developed partnerships with a vast array of public schools and other nonprofit organizations to reach its intended population.
