Chill Foundation - Toronto
The Mission of The Chill Foundation is to provide opportunities for underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through snowboarding and other 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. Our six weekly themes; patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride, provide a framework for learning and personal growth. We use our time on the ride up to the mountain to introduce the weekly theme through an activity, and reinforce the concept during our time on the mountain. This structure allows participants to make meaningful connections to the curriculum while experiencing the innate joy of snowboarding.
