After School Program

We exist so East End youth increasingly believe and embody: “We matter. We are maturing. We can make a difference." Because of God and his good news, we practice radical hospitality, authentic relationships, and meaningful opportunities, in order to foster the identityresiliency, and agency of youth in the East End. CHAT offers four core After School Programs, all of which are led by our team of staff, interns, residents, and volunteers.

  • HOMEWORK HELP + MENTORING pairs students with a trusted adult who helps with homework and encourages positive life choices. Additionally, students receive dinner, recreation time, and spiritual instruction.

  • ELECTIVES are once-a-week opportunities for enrichment in partnership with community members and organizations. Subject to change every semester, they have included: Sewing, Squash Rocks, Richmond Urban Dance, Nehemiah's Workshop, and more.

  • PHANTOMS BASKETBALL TEAM is a high school varsity boys basketball team that focuses on character and spiritual development while competing against other metropolitan Richmond varsity teams in the Capital City Athletic Conference (CCAC).

  • SUMMER PROGRAM is an opportunity for students to stay connected with one another and the CHAT family of Staff and Volunteers.
