Indigo Youth Movement

In 2002, Dallas Oberholzer headed for Isithumba, KwaZulu-Natal. There he started the Indigo Youth Movement, which seeks to unite young people through skateboarding, mentoring and community development.
Dallas mobilised community members to help build an epic skate park where local children were taught to skateboard. This kept them off the streets and sparked in them a passion for sport, as well as solid friendships with each other. The project is now a structured programme that runs every weekday afternoon and includes skills development in art, music, dance, film and photography. It also educates the 50-60 youngsters who participate on issues of health and safety.
