About the organizers

SLT is all about growing as a person and following your passions.

 The AV Skatepark Project is a project of the AV Jr/Sr High School Service Learning Team (SLT), in collaboration with the Anderson Valley Community Services District (AVCSD) Parks and Recreation Committee. 

The AV Service Learning Team is an after-school student group that focuses on encouraging leadership among students and giving them power to make changes in their community. Improvements can be big such as restoring Paul Dimmick State Park, or they can be small such as bringing awareness to our watershed by painting a water tank. What matters is that each student works on a project that they choose and are passionate about it. No matter the size of the project, we always learn something from everything we do. 

 

The idea for a skatepark in AV has been raised by students many times over the years, but it wasn't until 2021 that a group of Service Learning Team students decided to take this on as a focused mission. The group began attending monthly CSD Parks and Recreation meetings in October 2021, and gave a formal presentation making their case for the skatepark. CSD Rec Committee members enthusiastically embraced the idea and have decided to partner in the project, as part of broader mission to expand and improve the AV Community Park area they oversee (beside the clinic). The CSD is serving as the fiscal sponsor for the AV Skatepark Project, which means that all donated funds are deposited in a CSD account designated for the skatepark project.
