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.
