In a nutshell, we offer local kids free surf lessons and surfing activities in exchange for signing up to our long-term mentorship program. Through this program, we encourage them to value education and their own potential by incentivising school enrolment, attendance and grades. Children are required to attend life-skills workshops and life-knowledge/empowerment seminars, that are educating them on the most crucial issues that are not covered in school here. Grom Nation is a safe and consistent support network for the youth here and also runs campaigns driving social change in the Island, in order to promote a safer and stronger community.
We are located in Siargao Island, Philippines.
What sets Grom Nation apart? We are an Australian Registered Charity that operates in the Philippines. We keep audited accounts of finances and have extremely thorough child protection policies, as the safety of the kids is our main concern.
