About Us

Our Initiatives

CHAD seeks to establish an awareness and educational outreach program targeted at Charlestown youth and parents. The program curriculum would be developed to target children (ages 5 – 11), adolescents (12 – 18), and parents and guardians.

Because CHAD is, itself, a coalition of numerous groups, it is well-positioned to create and implement educational outreach. CHAD will require all youth-serving programs that receive funding from CHAD to require each participant youth and at least one of his or her parents to attend a forum or seminar, as a condition to funding.
