The Chill Foundation

Location: Burlington, Vermont

Mission: To build the self-esteem and life skills of underserved youth through board sports.

Program: Chill Burlington Development Program - This exciting program provides opportunities for at-risk and underserved youth to build self-esteem and life skills through board sports. Each year, 75-100 youth participate in a six-week program that includes lift tickets, lessons, transportation, and head-to-toe gear. A large number of chaperones, including Chill alumni and Burton employees, volunteer off and on-snow. By equipping youth participants with valuable life skills and self-esteem, they are able to grow up to be active and engaged members of the Burlington community.
