Figure Skating In The City is a program that serves middle school girls in Baltimore City. We use figure skating to help build self-confidence, strengthen academic achievement and promote physical well-being of those in under-served communities. With our program, FSTC will use lessons learned on the ice to enhance classroom and life skills off the ice.
Figure Skating In The City is designed to help girls of under-served communities through multi-dimensional approaches on and off the ice. FSTC will help build self-confidence, help strengthen academic achievement and promote physical well-being.
Figure Skating In The City will help transform the lives of inner city girls by providing them with the practical tools to grow in confidence, academic achievement, leadership & teamwork and combat obesity.
Figure Skating In The City seeks volunteers interested in working with our girls as figure skating teachers and aids. In addition, we seek volunteers to host various activities in job skills, career paths, other creative physical activities, eating healthy and cooking healthy. If interested in volunteering as a skating teacher or aid please download the application here. If interested in hosting off ice activities for the girls, please contact us.
