SKIing and Snowboarding for Disabled and Underprivileged Children and older Kids.

SkiDUCK is a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of disabled and underprivileged children by teaching and sharing the joys of skiing and snowboarding.

We're ENTIRELY volunteer-based (NO paid salaries!) so ALL donations received go directly to support kids' ski and snowboard programs! We're committed to partnering with local organizations with similar goals of serving underprivileged youth.

And in areas where these needs aren't yet being served, we seek to establish a sustainable model of service with local resources and volunteers.

If your community or organization is interested in partnering with SkiDUCK to establish or enhance a program to help disadvantaged youth onto the slopes, give us a QUACK!

  • 3715 Atherton Road, Ste. 1
    Rocklin, Placer

The Youth Mentor program assigns volunteer mentors to children who are at-risk of educational failure, and former foster youth who are transitioning into adulthood without family support. These at-risk youth are not currently involved in any court system, but are identified as being at-risk of educational failure (truancy) or of entering the juvenile justice or child welfare systems.

As with CASA volunteers, Mentors meet weekly with the youth, helping to:
  • Define and accomplish goals
  • Introduce youth to opportunties and potential life paths that they never dreamed possible
  • As important role models, Mentors strive to navigate at-risk youth and former foster youth toward positive outcomes that will help these young people transition successfully into adulthood.

For more information, contact the Child Advocates of Placer County's office: (530) 887-1006.
