What We Do
Rabble Mill works to end generational poverty, one young person at a time, by enabling kids to find their passion and build their talent. We create more skilled, supported, and connected communities through storytelling, education and art across subcultures — skateboarding, music and art.
We do this through our program divisions, The Bay (enhanced by Hear Nebraska programming), and Skate for Change. 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.
