At Chill, our mission is to inspire young people to overcome challenges through boardsports. Working with participants from marginalized communities, we leverage the excitement and unique experience of snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, and paddleboarding, while incorporating life-lessons that promote personal growth and supportive community for those struggling with the negative circumstances that are holding them back.
We coach resilience, progression, and leadership, which are enhanced through the fun, yet demanding, experience of learning a new sport. By covering all costs and building strong alliances with schools, social service and juvenile justice programs, youth agencies, and our boardsports partners, we’re able to change over 3,000 lives every year.
As an important part of the Burton Snowboards family since 1995, we’re proud to be in 21 cities globally, and have grown into a world-class, non-profit organization supported by thousands of donors annually. Visit www.Chill.org.
