Students, Skateboarding and Social Enterprise

To address the ongoing issue of student dropouts, Toronto District School Board (TDSB) teacher Craig Morrison started a school-business program called the Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) to help keep teens stay in school.

The program operates via the Scadding Court Community Centre in Toronto. Students do basic functions in running a skateboard business such as manufacturing, design, marketing and sales. Catering to boosting students’ morale and self-esteem, the skateboard company enables students to receive credits while building a successful brand.
