The Chill Foundation inspires youth to overcome challenges through board sports. Founded by Jake and Donna Carpenter of Burton Snowboard, Chill has served more than 20,000 young people since the program began, working with approximately 1,400 youth annually. We work with social service agencies, mental health agencies, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs, and schools in local communities to select youth participants. 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. Since inception, Chill has grown to 13 cities across North America, and several international affiliate programs in Italy, Austria, Australia, Japan, and the Czech Republic. We run programs at 13 sites: Boston, Burlington, Chicago, Denver, D.C./Baltimore, Salt Lake City, New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, and Toronto. The Chill program embodies the latest Positive Youth Development (PYD) best practices to ensure participating youth build resiliency through targeted lessons and challenging physical activities.
