Share winter foundation
This past March, APDC Youth Leadership Academy™ was selected as grantees of the Share Winter Foundation!
Share Winter Foundation (“Share Winter”) is a grantmaking organization working to improve the lives, health, and fitness of youth through winter sports. Share Winter works closely with carefully selected grantees to build efficient, effective, sustainable winter sports programs and pipelines to ongoing winter sports participation.
Every Saturday for four weeks, APDC YLA™ members took part in either skiing or snowboarding lessons. Aside from lessons, students were able to learn more about career exploration in the snow and winter sports industry. Many participants had little to no experience in snow sports and were able to face their fears to progress throughout the program. This partnership with Share Winter and APDC YLA™ strives to make a difference in the winter sports industry by making it accessible and inclusive to all.
