CHAMPS Program: October 16 @ 6pm

The Bloomfield College Coaching Health for African-American Males to Promote Success (C.H.A.M.P.S.) Program will host a two-hour event entitled “From College to Career: Life & Time Management” on October 16, 2013 at 6:00 PM in the Student Center, Room 1, the second in a year-long series of educational sessions designed to help students reach their academic, student engagement and healthy lifestyle goals.

Launched in September 2012 and funded by the Predominantly Black Institutions (PBI) Competitive Grant, the C.H.A.M.P.S. Program brings together individual coaches with male students to develop their short and long-term goals and help maximize on-campus resources. The initiative is designed to increase the retention, graduation and academic success of African-American male students through an intensive coaching and mentoring program.

Trained C.H.A.M.P.S. coaches include Bloomfield College alumni, staff, and community members dedicated to the success of the institution’s current students. Each of the ten coaches boasts prior mentoring and coaching experience, and an understanding of the unique challenges facing African-American male college students.

In addition to monthly group events centered on personal and professional development, students also engage in one-on-one personal coaching sessions each month with a designated C.H.A.M.P.S. coach. The result is a comprehensive yearlong program, which includes such highlights as a Success Conference in December 2013 and a Career Conference in conjunction with Bloomfield’s Center for Career Development in March 2014.

“I am very excited to kick off the second year of this program here at Bloomfield,” C.H.A.M.P.S. Program master coach Dr. Denise Dennis said. "Coaching is a partnership that supports you in crafting a more fulfilling life. Your coach will help you identify academic and personal goals, and create an action plan to accomplish those goals and achieve results. Our program helps students achieve results and sustain life-changing behaviors in their academic and personal lives. We are enthusiastic about its future, and hope to continue to impact our students and create positive change."
