Weather permitting, you can expect mentors to be at the Glendale Skatepark until the end of September!

Meet our mentors

Aaron

Hi! My name is Aaron, and I’m the Youth Coordinator at Northside Community Centre YMCA! I started as a Skatepark Mentor last year, and now I am in charge of this program! I’ve been skating for eight years and am very excited to be spending more time at Glendale Skatepark.

One of the things I am most excited about is to be able to help make the skatepark as welcoming and safe as possible for everyone of all ages and abilities by the end of this summer, as well as have another successful year!

Noah

My name is Noah, and I’ve been biking for around six years. I’m always pushing myself to learn more, and my dream is to eventually ride in competitions.

I started biking when my brother convinced me to come to Glendale Skatepark, and ever since the first session, I fell in love with biking, and now I have the opportunity to make my home skatepark a better place and teach people who are new to biking for my second season, all thanks to the YMCA. Biking is truly my passion, and I want to thank my brother Joey for getting me into biking.

Shae

Hi, my name is Shae, and I am one of the returning skatepark mentors at Glendale Skatepark! I was only introduced to skateboarding two years ago, but I have quickly fallen in love with the sport. Growing up, I always wanted to learn to skateboard but was always discouraged because being a girl at a skatepark can be very intimidating.

I am super excited for the opportunity to make the skatepark a welcoming, fun and safe place for anyone, regardless of age, gender or riding ability. And for the chance to be a great role model to the younger kids who love to spend their days at the skatepark just like me.
