Our Mission: Youth of Pelham
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

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.
