Volunteers, or "program mentors" as they’re known at Chill, are an integral part of programs. From helping youth strap into their board for the first time to lending a hand with program logistics, program mentors are invaluable when it comes to positive role modeling and executing a successful program.
Program mentors have a passion for boardsports, a positive attitude, and a willingness to jump in where needed.
Volunteering with Chill is an incredibly meaningful way to contribute positively to your community. Program mentors play a huge role in bridging the boardsport/outdoor opportunity gaps for youth, and fostering a sense of belonging within a cool, authentic, and alternative culture. What could be a better way than that to spend your time?!
Basically, some skateboard with us this fall! We have two skateboard programs and the more volunteers the merrier. Send me an email if you are interested in building relationships with youth through skateboarding.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About The Chill Foundation-NYC Chapter
Brooklyn and The Bronx, Brooklyn, NY 11221, US
Chill programs embody the latest Positive Youth Development (PYD) best practices to ensure participating youth build resiliency through targeted lessons and challenging physical activities. Revolving around a core value-driven curriculum, Chill programs consist of experiential learning activities, reflection, and discussion, paired with boardsport lessons (SKATEBOARDING, SNOWBOARDING, SURFING). Chill’s six core values provide youth with a foundation and framework for learning and growth, supported and enhanced through progression in boardsports skills and adult mentorship. Chill strives to remove all barriers to accessing boardsports by providing youth with everything they need to get after it, at absolutely no cost. New skills gained through boardsport skills progression and core-value exploration are then directly applied to everyday life, challenging youth to step out of their comfort zone - both on and off their board.
Chill was founded in 1995 by Jake and Donna Carpenter, founders of Burton Snowboards.
Chill has served more than 30,000 young people since the program began, working with approximately 3,000 youth annually. We work with social service agencies, mental health agencies, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs, and schools in local communities to engage youth participants. All gear and services necessary to enjoy boardsports are provided to the youth at no cost.
Our programs recognize the inherent strength and potential present in each of our participants. Through boardsports, we teach new skills, build confidence, and inspire a lifelong love for boardsports (SKATEBOARDING, SNOWBOARDING, SURFING)
