MISSION STATEMENT: To provide an educational program to Georgia's
 youth, which provides guidance, and the skills, ability and knowledge to 
be safe, healthy, and happy, in preparation for a successful life.

Today's youth face dangers older generations could not have imagined. 
Choosing Healthy Activities and Methods Promoting Safety (C.H.A.M.P.S.) 
was founded in 2003 by the Georgia Sheriffs' Association to address 
these urgent challenges.

You can support C.H.A.M.P.S. by making a donation to the Georgia Sheriffs'
 Association or by contacting Captain Terry Hayes or Sgt. Scott Raley at the 
Mitchell County Sheriff's Office.

The flexible program includes a weekly hour long lesson from a 
C.H.A.M.P.S. certified deputy sheriff. 

Subject matter includes:

Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Abuse Prevention
ATV Safety
Gangs and Violence
Peer Pressure
Water Safety
And Much More!

The target audience is fifth graders, and the program is tailored to meet 
the unique needs of students in each county so they resist self-destructive
 behavior. Good behavior is positively reinforced through fun, rewarding activities.

 The C.H.A.M.P.S. program is offered to every school in Mitchell county and is
 currently taught in the following schools:

Mitchell County Middle
Pelham Elementary
