The Power of We

A Letter from CEO & Founder CHAT is not a program. CHAT is a ‘we’. As you look through this annual report, you might be overwhelmed by all that we are doing. I know that I am. We have an abundance of activities. In our community, you can’t throw a rock and not hit someone doing something with CHAT. This is why we teach the kids to not throw rocks. But if all that you see is what we ‘do’, you are missing the real power of ‘we’. You may see a picture of a fifth grader reading the ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ with a tutor. I see a young man who has an ever-growing authentic relationship with an adult he probably never would have met otherwise. You see some teenager sitting in a classroom working on pre-Calculus. I see a student who chose to press deeper into study because someone cared to challenge them, have faith in them, and stand alongside them. Relationship changes everything. We understand that if you take any kid and surround them with a supportive community, you can see the impossible. Thank you for being in relationship with us. Every time you give, you pray, you volunteer, or you invite others to get involved, you make our ‘we’ stronger.

The Power of We CHAT is fueled by relationships. It started between neighbors, and soon volunteers, staff, community members, friends and family from around the country joined in. Over the years, the web has grown wider and stronger, becoming a safety net for the kids and families in our community, but more importantly, a springboard to a brighter future. And none of it could have happened without the simple person-to-person strength of relationships. We call it the power of WE, and we see it at work every day.

CHAT Programs After School Tutoring

Tiny Tykes

Held on Mondays and Tuesdays in six different Church Hill locations, these two-hour tutoring sessions are led by Site Leaders, assisted by Street Leaders and volunteers. They work one-to-one with students from Church Hill, ages 5-18, on homework, reading and recreation.

A preschool program for Church Hill that is committed to fostering a love of learning through a gospel-centered, creative, community-focused education.

Church Hill Academy

Wacky Wednesdays

Started in 2007, our private, faith-based high school for at-risk students focuses on significant academic improvement and character development.

We take good, wholesome fun seriously at our entertaining and instructive life skills programs, where we use disciplines such as woodworking, cooking, dancing, sewing, and farming to teach lifelong tools for productive living.

Youth Fellowship Groups

Street Leaders

Young men and women meet in YMA (Young Men’s Academy) or LOVE (Ladies of Virtue and Excellence) on Thursday and Friday afternoons for conversation, community activities and spiritual development.

Highly motivated and engaged neighborhood students are selected and hired to become Street Leaders who assist in tutoring and summer camp programs.


Summer Day Camp

Throughout the year and/or summer, teams of high school students develop and run small businesses for profit. Businesses vary from woodworking, screen printing to farming.

An eight-week summer program that includes recreation, life-skills classes, field trips, Bible study and the opportunity to attend a week-long overnight camp.


CHAT Phantoms

Summer and year-long internships are available to college students and graduates. They’ve come from 31 colleges and four countries to work with CHAT youth, study urban community development and racial reconciliation, and live in the community they serve.

Our first offical team, the Phantoms play basketball against other regional varsity and junior varsity teams.


2012-2013 Highlights CHAT opened its 6th tutoring site, the Beach House, on 22nd St. CHAT launched a new pre-school program, Tiny Tykes, to serve 2 ½ to 4 ½ year old students in the community.

Volunteer & Youth Averages

5 seniors graduated from Church Hill Academy. 100% are employed or enrolled in college. CHAT came in 2nd place in the 2012 Amazing Raise, raising $115,000 for CHAT’s Resurrection House. CHAT’s 28 staff members raised $380,679 by reaching out to friends and family, and asking them to support their work in the community. CHAT received a $45,000 grant from the Brookfield Foundation to expand two Entreprenurships, Nehemiah’s Workshop and Screen Printing.

The Power of


Shawn Boyer, Snag A Job When Shawn Boyer, CEO of SnagAJob, read an article in the Richmond Times Dispatch about CHAT, he was immediately interested in our mission and signed up to tutor. Working one-on-one with students, he was inspired by their potential but disheartened by the unique challenges they faced. A half an hour of encouragement helped one of his students go from saying he couldn’t multiply to whizzing through multiplication tables. But giving another student a ride home opened Shawn’s eyes to realities and uncertainties of life outside of school for many of the kids at tutoring that he wasn’t affecting. He felt he – and his company – could do more. SnagAJob began its friendship with CHAT offering a few hours of “interviewing tips” for students looking for summer jobs and internships. Since seeing the effect of minimum coaching the program has grown considerably; now it’s multiple days of comprehensive job search preparation and mock interviews. While recognizing that our students benefit from the lessons SnagAJob teaches, Shawn believes that SnagAJob staff gets as much, if not more, out of the relationship. His team’s work with CHAT has helped them to be better at what they do, while giving them a common passion and commitment to share: changing kids’ futures for the better.

He felt he – and his company – could offer more. 6

The Power of


Sophonie Jean & Briana Cary Sophonie tutored for CHAT as a college student, then moved to Church Hill after graduating. Briana started CHAT in the eighth grade, curious about the tutoring program neighborhood kids talked about. The two met when Sophonie led Briana’s LOVE fellowship group, so when Briana entered Church Hill Academy and needed a mentor, she immediately thought of Sophonie. For this duo, mentorship has meant everything from cooking, eating out, meeting friends, and shopping to going on a mission trip to Haiti, where Sophonie also taught Briana about her culture. While these were significant experiences, the ability to be authentic has proven most valuable. “I feel like with Soph, I can tell her anything and she can tell me the truth,” Briana says. Sometimes the truth challenged her, and made her think about things she didn’t want to, but through that, “I come to realize the right thing to do,” she explained. Sophonie agreed. As they grew closer Briana saw many sides of her as well: “Briana knows my personality… I think it really has made both of us more open about everything just being in each others’ lives.” As a community, this is what we strive toward: intentional and organic relationships that become a part of everyday life, while over time exposing, challenging and uplifting all involved.

“I feel like with Soph, I can tell her anything...”


The Power of

Community Kathi Picton

Kathi always dreamed of retiring to the beach. But when she learned about CHAT and visited the Twenty Spot tutoring site, seeing the students’ needs and the care with which site homeowners Murray and Lauren Withrow met them struck a lasting chord with her. “I just really felt like I wanted to be a part of what was going on here,” she said. At that time she lived in the suburbs of Chesterfield and wasn’t as actively engaged with her immediate community. “I don’t know that I actually thought about intentional relationships and being an intentional neighbor before,” she recalls. Now Kathi has opened her life to her new community. She has developed close relationships with neighbors, welcomed CHAT interns and participants to live with her, and is the director of the Little Tykes branch of our After School Tutoring program. “CHAT becomes your life, it’s how you live,” she explained. Kathi did not foresee retiring to Church Hill. But when she opened up her home as CHAT’s sixth tutoring site, she named it the Beach House.

“I just really felt like I wanted to be a part of what was going on here.” 10

The Power of


Urban Farming The vacant lot home to CHAT’s Urban Garden was dry and inhospitable at first, riddled with rocks and bricks. That changed when young gardeners such as CHAT student Chris Wilson, Church Hill Academy teacher Charles Gentry, and others spent the summer removing debris, loosening the dirt, and preparing for a harvest of tomatoes, peppers and potatoes. The Urban Garden has become a part of CHAT’s summer programming, employing two students to tend the garden assisted by volunteers. “A lot of hard work comes from things that are really tough to do… but they need to be done,” says Charles. The key to their success, according to Chris, was working together as a team, showing up each day and persevering. Work in the garden teaches valuable skills of endurance and stewardship, and illustrates the business and discipline of healthy food production. But the real beauty of our garden is its ability to help unite our community. Chris explains, “People in the community come over to the garden, pick some plants, pick some tomatoes or any varieties of things here…We love that.”

The real beauty of our garden is its ability to help unite our community. 20
