Life Skills, through Board Sports.

OVER $4K RAISED BY CHILL BOSTON TEAM FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUTH

Chris’ Story:

Structured lessons in snowboarding, skateboarding and paddleboarding provide the underprivileged youth of Boston with everything they need to learn important life skills like perseverance and patience – all at no cost to them. Now in his 18th season as a volunteer instructor, Chris considers it a privilege to help these deserving young people grow and develop.

The community of Boston steps up and works together to provide the underprivileged youth in the area with the privileged opportunity that is snowboarding.

Participants react:

“The attraction of snowboarding is the freedom it gives you. With a snowboard on your feet the sky is the limit. You can do anything and go anywhere,” Comments Jeremy Jones.

“Snowboarding gives me a happiness that nothing else does. The sense of adventure, exploration, and being out in the mountains is humbling and fulfilling,” adds Kimy Fasani.

The Chill Foundation

Chill inspires youth to overcome challenges through board sports. Chill’s core youth development program revolves around a six-week curriculum that uses snowboarding to teach life skills and increase self-esteem in underserved youth between the ages of 10-18. Six weekly themes of patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride, provide a framework for learning and personal growth. Time on the ride up to the mountain is used to introduce the weekly theme through an activity and reinforce the concept. This structure allows participants to make meaningful connections to the curriculum while experiencing the innate joy of snowboarding.
