Our purpose is to ensure a healthy and vibrant community for and with the youth of Pelham.
We advocate for and develop empowered youth, engaged adults, and energized community partners.
Dr. Cheryl Champ
As hard as we work to educate students in the classroom, we know that effective education of the whole child only occurs when we work together as a school system and community. I’m thrilled about the opportunity to partner with Pelham Together as we strive to help our students make healthy choices, grow emotionally, and prepare for their adult lives.
As parents of three children who’ve gone through the wonderful Pelham schools, we’d heard teens bemoan the limited after school opportunities for them to socialize with their peers….big changes have been made to expand this. Our daughter gave up a great deal of her free time toward helping to revive the teen scene in an effort to involve the Pelham businesses and government representatives in the new Pelham LOFT. The experience has allowed her to realize her potential as a youth leader and her involvement has led to a legacy she will no doubt look back on fondly with great satisfaction.
PACT and the CCC have been wonderful partners with our schools for many years, working to provide opportunities for our students that are meaningful and impactful. I look forward to continuing our work with ‘Pelham Together’ as we strive to help our youngsters navigate the complex world in which we live.
We are so incredibly lucky to have an organization like Pelham Together in our town working to empower our students and young adults to make wise and good decisions. I love to bounce ideas around with Laura (Caruso) on how we use films and post-screening talks as growing experiences for our families, or ways to engage students in giving back by volunteering for the Pelham Chamber of Commerce.
