Welcome to the CHAMPS Program!

    Hello, my name is Courtney Hogard and I work for the Perry County Community Task Force. The Task Force serves the Perry County community by providing free programs to encourage the prevention of drug and substance use. One of our many free programs is CHAMPS mentoring.

CHAMPS is an after-school program (see back for schedule) that allows children to participate in different activities such as crafts and games while they interact with adult role models. This allows children to build relationships that encourage them to have a larger support system as they grow and mature. We also take time during each session to learn different character traits such as respect, teamwork, and self-esteem, just to name a few.     

    Enclosed you will find a permission and record release form that needs to be completed and returned if you would like for your child(ren) to be enrolled in CHAMPS. Also enclosed is a checklist of needs that we ask the parent/guardian to fill out so that we can work together to help the child(ren) become well-rounded individuals at home, school, and in the community.

    We also ask that you work with your child(ren) to complete the interest inventory that is enclosed. This form gives us a greater insight into activities that would be exciting for your child(ren) so that we can make the program the best possible for each child enrolled. Completed forms should be sent back in the provided envelope.

    If for any reason behavior becomes disruptive to the group, we will ask the family to remove the participant from the program. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at any time. My information is highlighted at the bottom of this page. I thank you very much for the opportunity to work with your child(ren) to make Perry County the best it possibly can be.

Courtney Hogard
