What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Get Out & Play

The Get Out & Play program is a partnership with local elementary schools, local sports venues, and the Youth Sports Alliance that offers children the opportunity to participate in ski, snowboard, cross country, freestyle, freeride, ski jumping, ice skating, mountain biking, and bouldering at an affordable price.

This supervised program includes instruction, lift pass, ice time and transportation from schools to participating venues, and could not happen without the countless parent volunteers who assist with everything from getting kids geared up at the schools, to chaperoning on the buses that transport the students to the select venues, to helping on the mountain or trail with the lessons.

The Get Out & Play program truly offers something valuable for just about every student in this community, whether it is getting them off of the couch on Friday afternoon, exposing them to a new sport they have never tried, or challenging their already developed skills.

Participants learn 5 core values with the acronym of sport - Sportsmanship, Perseverance, Optimism, Respect, and Teamwork, all building blocks for life.

ACTiV8 is a unique (and growing) community collaboration that includes numerous non-profits, businesses and schools providing 6th-8th grade students with fun after school activities on early release days. Because teen/tween-agers have different needs -- and wants -- than their younger, elementary school friends and relatives, all ACTiV8 offerings were developed through brainstorming sessions with students. The outcome was courses specifically crafted for middle school and junior high students including Teen Iron Chef, MOVE Conditioning by CrossFit Park City, Skateboarding with Skullcandy, photography, film, sports performance training, and more! Multiple activities are offered each month with students having the option to choose one.

ACTiV8 focuses on developing eight lifestyle qualities: Accountability, Confidence, Equality, Inspiration, Kindness, Leadership, Respect, and Versatility. Students are given a “community passport” after their first session and are responsible for obtaining signatures from instructors after each activity. Upon completing eight activities (one of which must include CPR), students receive a Park City ACTiV8 Award. The CPR requirement (Accountability) allows students to earn money as babysitters or from other organizations around town.
