Chill Portland


Michael Watts
Portland Manager


Chill Portland, launched in 2006, serves more than 70 youth each winter. Using board sports to motivate youth to accomplish goals they never thought they could, we teach them some of the most important lessons in life about patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride – our weekly themes within our programs.

 Chill is serving the following Portland agencies in 2015:

  • Rosemary Anderson High School North and East
  • IROC (Asian Family Center)
  • Centennial Park School
  • Ron Russell SUN CS
  • Floyd Light SUN CS
  • Reynolds Learning Academy
  • Youth Progress
