What We Do
Rabble Mill provides economically and culturally disadvantaged youth with the belonging and purpose they need to grow and reinvest in their community.
We do this through out-of-school programming, and our program divisions, The Bay (enhanced by Hear Nebraska programming), and Skate for Change. In 2019, we helped a class of fourth-graders at Nelson Mandela Elementary produce a physical 'zine about the concept of unity. We participated in Sherman Elementary's Family Night, and provided skateboarding equipment and repairs to Omaha's community at Lynch Park in conjunction with Civic Nebraska's Think Make Create trailer.
The Bay's core program, the All-Access Pass, provides 150 low-income and at-risk youth with free access to our space and all related programming (Skate School, shows at our all-ages music venue, educational opportunities in our digital arts lab), as well as a free healthy meal five days a week.
Skate for Change is an international program that got its start in Omaha and Lincoln. Youth are empowered to determine what their community needs and respond accordingly. Most frequently, skateboarders host sock drives and collect bottled water and hygiene kits. They distribute them to people in their community experiencing homelessness. There are currently 73 active chapters around the world.
