Los Angeles

Established in 2000, Chill LA operates skateboard and surf programs throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons 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.

Programs

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.

Surf

With surfing, the challenge (and fun) begins long before ever riding the board. Paddling out, catching a wave, and standing up are all challenges to overcome on the road riding your first wave and experiencing the pride and excitement that come with it.

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.
