FriendCHIPS Youth Mentoring of Essex CHIPS is a school-based mentoring program that
empowers 4-8th grade students in the Essex Town and Junction communities
to make healthy life choices that enable them to maximize their
personal potential.  Adults volunteer to spend one hour per week with a
student at school, participating in activities together such as games,
arts & crafts, sports, cooking and conversation.
