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.

In 2013, Chill served the following Portland agencies:

  • Ackerman Academy Alternative School
  • DePaul Youth & Family
  • Friends of the Children (FOTC)
  • Immigrant & Refugee Community Organization/Asian Family Center (IRCO/AFC)
  • Lane SUN Community School
  • Native American Youth and Family (NAYA)
  • Open Meadow
  • Oregon Outreach, Inc.
  • POIC – Rosemary Anderson High School North & East
  • Shaver SUN Elementary School

Winter Program:
