Elementary age Chester children in 2nd – 6th grade can participate by registering for an Open Event, like Palace Bowling, Learn-To-Skate or Camp Lionheart. These events do not require a long-term commitment. The child simply needs to be available for that one event, and needs to be the right age for that event. To see a list of Upcoming Open Events, please click here.
Chester 5th and 6th graders who are willing to make a greater commitment can register for the Warrior Guides mentoring program in September. This program pairs each Chester student with a Henderson High School student for the entire school year, and together the kids enjoy monthly fun events such as a Henderson Football Game, Urban Air Trampoline Park and Bowling. No prior involvement with the Foundation is required. To find out more about Warrior Guides, please click here.
Chester 7th – 10th graders are encouraged to join our teen leadership development program, called RISE. To register for RISE, Chester students must register for and attend the RISE Open House in April. Students must enroll in RISE in the spring of their 6th grade year. RISE is a four-year program, which requires a weekly commitment to attend meetings and then weekend field trips, retreats, art and multimedia workshops, social events and camp. No prior involvement with the Foundation is required. To find out more about RISE, please click here.
Any and all Chester 11th and 12th graders are welcome to join Launch, our workshop based program (still in development) that prepares those close to graduation for college and/or career. Registration for Launch will be determined at a later date. To find out more about Launch, please click here.
