Mission Statement

To provide a vehicle for self-esteem to disadvantaged inner-city kids through the sport of snowboarding

Description

Chill is an international intervention program for disadntaged inner city kids. Chill is currently located in 11 cities and takes boys and girls ages 10-18 snowboarding once a week for six weeks. We provide them with everything they need for this experience, lift tickets, instruction, bus transportation, and head-to-toe equipment including jackets, pants, and gloves. Because Chill takes them snowboarding once a week for six weeks, they all have the time needed to actually learn how to snowboard. This experience develops the self confidence that these troubled youth often lack. Chill partners with youth and social service agencies that work with kids who have a multitude of issues. Chill serves kids in group homes and foster care, kids on probation, kids with chemical dependencies, and kids from low income neighborhoods who are at risk for gangs, drugs, violence, and depression. Most of the kids Chill reaches have never been out of their neighborhood
