TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
CHUMS are united in our mission to develop critical programs to support the enhancement of the youthful leaders of tomorrow. Each member and chapter of our organization understand our primary purpose incorporated in our theme, “listening to our children.”
We continue to co-exist with boycotting elections, disruptive political agendas, and tears of fear for black lives, as our organization stands fundamentally founded after 73 years of service… We Stand as a team, United in Purpose. As we progress through our current social and civic climate, we remind ourselves of the strength of our Founders who united in a time of war and bonded together for the greater good of humanity.

Through Sponsorships, ChumsCLE has assisted local area students in securing needed funds to attend college.
The statistics say that 1.2 million students drop out of high school every year, many falling into a cycle of poverty, unemployment and violence. Drop-out rates are also related to higher rates of imprisonment, with minorities disproportionately affected. Studies show that high school drop-outs are eight (8) times more likely to be incarcerated.
Even with the staggering statistics and studies, there is hope!
Chum Sisters support support children because they are the cornerstone to our future.
We establish relationships with schools, churches, child care services to identify the needs of our children and leverage our efforts to remove distractions that keep them from focusing on school, increase their confidence levels and assist with them with having strong relationships with their parents and family. We have projects that address children’s social skills and future educational needs, especially with the STEM programs.
Our hope is to enrich the lives of our children by helping them to develop to their fullest intellectual, moral, emotional, physical, and social potential.
