Early County Sheriff's Office Turns 5th Graders into C.H.A.M.P.S

By  | 

The Early County, Georgia Sheriff's Office is teaming up with the Early County School System to teach kids about good decision making.

It's called "Choosing Healthy Activities and Methods to Promote Safety" or C.H.A.M.P.S.
The 12-week program teaches 5th graders about peer pressure, drugs and alcohol. Students get hands-on experience with various group projects.

"We want to get to the 5th graders to teach them that there are other alternatives and safe ways to do things and there are better ways of doing things and not to be in the in crowd as far as bullying and gang activity," said Captain Sandra Martin from the Early County Sheriff's Office.

Classes are held once a week and they last about an hour.
