About CHAMPS Mentoring Program
The Mission of the CHAMPS Male Mentoring Program is to Educate, Empower, and Expose African-American and Latino Young Men beyond the four walls of the school in order to help them to achieve their dreams and goals. CHAMPS stands for Culturally Helping and Making Positive Success, and is a group mentoring program for boys and young men of color. Framed around Social Emotional Learning (SEL), violence prevention, and cultural relevance, CHAMPS delivers programming to support the development of positive racial identities and to provide youth with an optimistic view on education, their lives, and their family. CHAMPS works in schools and on weekends to bring young men in contact with positive male role models and expose them to new experiences, careers and ways of thinking.
