Chill inspires youth to overcome challenges through boardsports.
Chill Burlington was established in 1995 as our very first youth development program. We have grown over the years and currently offers on-snow programming on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort. New for 2017, we are excited to offer a day on-snow program at Stowe Mountain Resort. on Tuesdays.
Additionally, Chill Burlington runs a Summer SUP program and a Fall skateboarding program. Since our inception, the Chill Burlington site has served more than 1,000 youth in the greater Burlington area.
Through snowboarding, skateboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, and surfing, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride.
We work with social service agencies, mental health agencies, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs, and schools in local communities to select youth participants between 10 and 18 years old. Everything is provided to the youth at no cost.
We focus on the resiliency of our participants to help them reach their full potential and see that there is a path out of their current circumstances. Their current situation doesn't have to define them or determine their path in life; Chill helps them to realize alternatives beyond the struggles they are dealing with.
