Seattle

Founded in 1999 as Chill’s first program outside Vermont, Chill Seattle 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.

“I would wait week after week for Chill to come just so I could leave all technology, all school, and all problems behind and let myself be free with the mountains. Not only did this 100% increase my confidence with everyday life and school but made me feel like I could do anything when I was on the mountain.”
