C.H.A.M.P.S. Male Mentoring Program

The mission of the C.H.A.M.P.S. 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. C.H.A.M.P.S. envisions a safe environment for every young man by developing their mindsets through culturally relevant conversations and interactions that will help them develop the skills and habits necessary to navigate life in a positive and productive way.

C.H.A.M.P.S. partners with local elementary and high schools to bring social-emotional learning curriculum and mentoring to young men in schools, and also runs community-based programming on weekends on the south and west sides of Chicago and in Calumet City.
