CHAP: CHILDREN’S HOPE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
CHAP is an after school therapeutic program that will assist middle school and high school age youth who are behaviorally and emotionally struggling due to life stressors and/or biological circumstances. Behavioral, emotional, and social challenges contribute to a disturbance in academic progress and family and interpersonal relationships.
Due to the difference in life experience and development of the middle school and high school age youth, CHAP will offer two tracks of the program based on the child’s age and grade to support them through the major transition and ensure that age appropriate interventions take place for each youth and their families.
CHAP focuses on encouraging and empowering youth and their families to actively engage in treatment, to define personal goals in the least restrictive environment, and to offer hope for a fully engaged and valued life in the community of their choice.
Margaret Mead said it best, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
