Hope for North Brevard is excited to team up with Astronaut High School and Madison Middle School to begin the CHAMP program. This program centers around the belief that our community can be a real champion for local youth and schools. CHAMP stands for “Community Helps Achieve Maximum Potential”. The facts are:
- North Brevard has some amazing and gifted students, but many of them also have personal struggles that prevent them from choosing success.
- North Brevard has many faithful teachers/staff who tirelessly invest in the lives of students, often with little resources.
- North Brevard is filled with caring and generous residents like YOU who can make the difference and help students achieve their fullest potential.
CHAMP mentoring program is all about positive role models like YOU committing to encourage 1 student for 30 minutes per week for the 2017-2018 school year. We are starting at Astronaut High School and Madison Middle School with the goal of assisting all of its feeder schools to establish a mentoring plan.
CHAMP will come out with more opportunities for the community to champion youth/schools (through sports, academics, etc.), but we begin with mentoring because it’s our belief that this one on one relationship is the most impactful and life changing.
Deadline to commit and complete the forms/fingerprinting is Monday, August 14th. We will have a training meeting at AHS’ Media Center on Friday, August 18th Noon-1pm (lunch provided). Mentoring will start the week of Sept 11th.
Astronaut High School, Madison Middle School and Hope for North Brevard believe mentoring is a huge need and a real answer for students. As a thank you, HNB is offering reimbursement for the fingerprinting cost and AHS/MMS are giving a complimentary annual pass to attend extracurricular activities, plus Business Partner opportunities.
We hope you choose to be a part of the CHAMP program! The FACT SHEET below gives more details regarding mentoring. Please complete the mentor or student profile form and return to the Astronaut High School/Madison Middle School front office or to email@example.com if you are interested in participating.
