ABOUT C.H.A.M.P.S.

C.H.A.M.P.S. Stand For:
Culturally Helping And Making Positive Success

CLICK HERE TO READ THE Huffington Post ARTICLE- "Beacon of Hope in chicago"

   
C.H.A.M.P.S. Male Mentoring Program offers a culturally sensitive approach to developing the mindsets of African American and Latino young men.  It is our hope that through culturally relevant conversations and interactions that our young men are able to develop the skills necessary to navigate life in a positive and productive way.  
   

EDUCATION 

 We believe that our young men must have the  proper educational support in school and life.  It is important that we continue our young men to get the highest academic degrees, certifications, and trainings available.  
   

EMPOWERMENT

We believe that our young men should be equipped to lead, communicate and engage in activities that catalyze the growth and development of their manhood that will sustain their families and communities. We meet every Saturday at the Gary Comer Youth Center.  
   

EXPOSURE

We believe that our young men should be  exposed beyond the  four walls of school to things  they would not otherwise organically interact  with.  We meet weekly during the school year, and for 6 weeks during the Summer.  
   

I'm proud to continue to use my platform to shine a #SpotlightOn young people like Darrion and Nick - they're leaders in their schools and in the community. They motivate me just as they say I motivate them. Learn more about them & others at http://3dwa.de/SptlghtOn.
