The CHAMPIONS NETWork is an initiative dedicated to making changes in health through an innovative approach.
Our mission is to promote youth empowerment for health equity.
Whether you are a prospective student, prospective partner, or community member, we invite you to share in our mission. Please join us and support our programs as we work to empower Chicago's youth and improve health outcomes in Chicago's neighborhoods.
Starting in the summer of 2016, we have selected a cohort of students from our partner schools to participate in our paid 6-week Summer Program. Students learn health skills such as bystander CPR in addition to receiving instruction in Health-Career Preparation, Life Sciences, Public Health, and Cultural Competency. We encourage our students to share what they have learned with their peers when school resumes. To encourage this further, we are currently working with two of our partner schools to bring health education and health advocacy directly to their classrooms through our Science & Health Immersion Program.
