107 YOUTH FROM 24 AREA AGENCIES ARE EXPECTED TO BENEFIT AT NO COST
Chill’s positive youth development programs are back for the 2020 winter season in its founding location, Burlington, VT! Beginning in January, local youth will participate in their six-week snowboarding programs at Stowe and Bolton Valley. All associated costs are covered for the participants including transportation, gear, lift tickets, and lessons.
Chill is a positive youth development program where boardsports become a vehicle for empowerment. Revolving around a core value-driven curriculum, Chill programs consist of experiential learning activities, reflection, and discussion, paired with boardsport lessons. Chill’s six core values provide youth with a foundation and framework for learning and growth, supported and enhanced through on-board progression and adult mentorship.
“Over 24 years of hard work, Chill has grown to 16 locations across North America, but the energy and passion in our founding location, Burlington, is still unparalleled,” said Alex Bornstein, Executive Director at Chill. “We’re incredibly stoked to be back on snow at Stowe and Bolton Valley in partnership with numerous amazing organizations that serve youth facing challenges, and we can’t wait to see how this program continues to grow and evolve.”
Chill reaches over 2,000 youth annually, with programs in 16 cities throughout North America.
The mission of the Chill Foundation is to inspire youth to overcome challenges through boardsports.
Chill operates in 16 cities throughout North America and internationally, and has served more than 25,000 young people since its inception. Chill made the transition from a private to a public charity in May, 2019. Contact Chill to volunteer HERE. Support Chill with a donation HERE.
