In After School

It Takes a Neighborhood

We are a faith-based community of Church Hill neighbors and friends who share a passionate belief in the power of fellowship to transform communities.

CHAT invests in the lives of our city’s most at-risk children, in one of the most unique and troubled neighborhoods in America.

A stone’s throw from Mr. Jefferson’s iconic State Capitol, and on the same hallowed ground where Virginia’s first governor, Patrick Henry, demanded freedom from oppression, we come together to equip and serve a community now in dire need of a resurrection.

The heart of what we do begins after school.

It’s our belief that by establishing strong connections through one-on-one tutoring, mentorship, enrichment activities and immersion in a supportive and nurturing community, we can teach skills and values and see our neighborhood youth empowered.

This CHAT Student Participant Form can be emailed to info@chatrichmond.org, or hand-delivered or mailed to 601 N. 31st St. Richmond, VA 23223.
