PO1: FAQs

1.  I've heard that students in the city are pretty tough.  Is volunteering with the Champion Academy safe?

Answer: Absolutely!  Our students are a part of the Champion Academy because they desperately want to elevate above their surroundings. In our years of operation, we have have ZERO instances where safety has been an issue.

 

But since we can't control the world outside the Champion Academy, we have put in place a host of safety measures to always make sure we protect our extended family. From extensive relationships in the city, expanded perimeters, private security and strategic scheduling of our program elements, we are quite confident you will be safe while you make a difference.  Feel more comfortable?  Awesome.  To get started as a volunteer, please click HERE.

 

2. Does volunteering for the Champion Academy require any formal training? 

Answer:  Yes, but not as much as you think!  Before each volunteer hour, we will give a brief 5-10 minute training to make sure every volunteer has the basic tools necessary to make the most impact during their hour.  Did that answer your question?  If so, let's get started as a volunteer by clicking HERE!
