Keaton Guess has been a volunteer with Chill NYC for two years now. When asked about his time with Chill, he had this to say: I've seen participants develop and grow during the program. From learning to strap in to hitting s-turns, and even riding a chair lift for the first time, the growth I've seen is indescribably amazing, but the personal growth is even better. It's #nationalvolunteerweek and all week long we'll be highlighting stories from some of our amazing volunteers. Make sure you follow us to hear more stories from our amazing crew! 📸: @buewho
As a volunteer, we are there to cheerlead, motivate, guide, try to create a positive experience, and encourage personal growth in the kids. For the time put in, we have a chance to get so much out of it -impact on the youth, yourself, and the awesome program as a whole. ...

This week is National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and all week long we're going to be shouting out some of the amazing people who provide their time, skills, and expertise year-round to help us keep our programs going. People like @ophraalexandra_photo, a long-time @chill_toronto photography volunteer. Ophra has been coming out and photographing our snow program (and now skate as well) for many years, and you'll likely recognize her work on our social media pages and website. She had this to say about her years of volunteering with Chill: Picking what organizations to support is not easy, bottom line you want to make sure that they’re not just making a difference in the moment, but that the difference is going to be carried out long after program ends. Chill is all about second chances and instilling invaluable skills like patience, self respect, kindness & perseverance into young people. You see time and time again how much of a difference the Chill employees are making in these kids’ lives and I can honestly say that volunteering with Chill is one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make. Thank you Ophra, and everyone else who supports us throughout North America. We couldn't do it without you! #chill #chillfoundation #rideinspirelead #volunteer #volunteerappreciation
