At CHAMPS, students participate in social-emotional developmental activities and have the chance to explore new opportunities outside of their usual space by taking field trips both within and outside of the city of Kalamazoo. Our knowledgeable staff creates a culture that is safe, supportive, interactive, and engaging so youth can thrive and succeed.
Eastside Youth Strong believes in a youth-driven approach. We encourage students to plan activities they enjoy and to embrace leadership roles at an early age. We value youth voices, which helps us cultivate a sense of belonging in our program.
