Mandi does an incredible job with her work at Chill and I am excited to be able to support her through this fundraiser. From Mandi's stories it seems like the youth involved in the Chill programs are the youth that I enjoy working with - they are independent thinkers - they speak their minds and ensure they're heard. They're sassy and witty and they like to joke around. They make you work for their trust, and are keen to connect. The youth are mentored through 6 weeks of snowboarding while applying important values like respect, persistence and courage. They are supported by adult chaperones from their youth organization along with a dedicated team of volunteers and instructors on the hill. It's a well designed program with important experiential learning components on and off the hill and a good set up of adult supports to guide the learning and growth. I know Mandi puts a ton of herself into the work and the youth benefit from the values she brings to them through her role at Chill. Hope you can join me in supporting Mandi and her work!
