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!

Genders & Sexualities Alliances, or GSAs for short, are student-run organizations that unite LGBTQ+ and allied youth to build community and organize around issues impacting them in their schools and communities. GSAs have evolved beyond their traditional role to serve as safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in middle schools and high schools, and have emerged as vehicles for deep social change related to racial, gender, and educational justice.

There are 3 different types of GSAs—all of which can directly impact LGBTQ+ youth: Social, Support, and Activist. Every GSA can create its own mission and goals to meet the needs of its members and the unique climate of their school.
