Choosing Healthy Activities & Methods Promoting Safety
The Georgia Sheriff's Association originated the CHAMPS Program in 2003. The program was designed to educate 5th grade students. There are about 1500 5th graders taught each year.
The CHAMPS curriculum has over twenty topics or lessons to choose from. Out of the twenty topics, instructors teach a six-week lesson plan, which may include topics such as:
- Choices and Consequences
- Internet Safety
- Peer Pressure
- Understanding and Avoiding Violent Behavior
At the conclusion of the six-week curriculum, a graduation is held at each school in celebration of each student's achievement.
