Meet Chris Noth, Youth Programs Manager


Chris Noth may be new to the Brooklyn Boulders Chicago facility, but his enthusiasm for youth programs began long before he stepped in our doors. Chris has years of experience working with youth in the classroom and the nonprofit sector, and loves his job because kids rule!

Chris has called Chicago home for the past 12 years and sometimes tries to pass himself off as a native. When he’s not hanging out at BKB, you can find Chris spending quality time with his wife and friends or rocking out with his band.

Now, he’s eager to grow the youth programs offerings at Brooklyn Boulders, including overseeing a revamp of our Party Room and growing our BKBeasts climbing team. Learn more about Chris’ background and why he loves coming to work everyday.


Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Des Moines. I came to Chicago in 2004 to go to DePaul.

What were you doing before you worked for BKB?

I used to work at Urban Alliance, a nonprofit organization that empowers local youth to achieve through mentoring and paid internships.

How do you hope to grow Youth Programs at BKB?

We have an environment here at BKB that naturally draws kids in. It is fun, creative and vibrant. My goal is to get the word out, especially to kids who have never climbed. When they get here, they love it.

Why do you like climbing?

Climbing is a challenge that demands persistence and strategy.  It’s a different experience every time.
