Who We Are

CHAMPS is a Community of Men.

From the staff, to the mentors, to our guests, alumni and mentees this is a community of men who support each other and value the role each man has to play in empowering our youth.

Our Staff

CHAMPS Mentors

Our mentors are men who care. They are men who want to make a difference in the lives of young men in their communities. They represent a diverse range of professions, backgrounds and experiences, but they share a commitment to the belief that our young men are Born 2 Win, and that mentorship is a calling.
