Supporting Community Programs for our Future Generation
Programs for kids from learning about nature to learning about the health profession.


CHAMPS is the Community Health & Adolescent Mentoring Program for Success at Children's Hospital Oakland. Formerly known as FACES for the Future, CHAMPS is a three-year internship program that introduces underrepresented minority high school students to health professions. The objective of CHAMPS is to introduce underrepresented minority high school students to the health professions, assist them in getting into educational programs of their choice, and equip them with the necessary personal skills to succeed in these and other demanding pursuits.
