Vancouver

Chill Vancouver operates year-round with snowboard, skateboard, and stand up paddleboard programs for youth from 11 to 19 years old. We work with various schools, youth agencies, social programs, and boardsports partners to provide these programs with all associated costs covered and barriers to participation removed. We embody the latest Positive Youth Development best practices to ensure participating youth build resiliency through targeted lessons and challenging physical activities.
Our programs use the process of learning boardsports, an experiential learning cycle, and a core value-driven curriculum to help youth grow personally and see that there is a path out of their current circumstances. To learn more, our program approach page HERE.

Programs

SNOW

There’s nothing quite like sliding on a board in the snow and succeeding at your first turns. More importantly, there’s nothing like the moment when you realize you’re capable of a lot more than you imagined, and that’s why snowboarding is so perfectly aligned to aid in self-empowerment and growth.

SKATE

Skateboarding provides unmatched accessibility, unique challenge, a vast community, and an incredible sense of pride and accomplishment. Anywhere there’s a hard surface you’ll find a tight knit group of skaters, supporting each other and pushing their personal boundaries, and that’s exactly what Chill’s skate programs bring to the youth.

SUP

Stand up paddleboarding provides a way to find peaceful balance, focused strength and a ton of adventure possibilities!  SUPing is a fun way for youth to get out on the water, just about anywhere.

“Chill makes me hopeful for the future; hopeful for my own future, the future of the youth who participate, and the future of this program which actively makes life more fun for those around it. I’m genuinely happy with the experience I got from this program and the effort I was able to give back to it.”
