Native iCHAMPS

Native iCHAMPS was created to help youth-serving organizations adopt, implement, and maintain sexual health programs in Native communities. Native iCHAMPS (CHoosing And Maintaining Effective Programs for Sex Education) is an online decision support system to help guide individuals through the process. This program was adapted from an existing support system, iCHAMPSS, which was originally developed for Texas schools to better serve the needs of Native communities. iCHAMPSS is based on a 7-step process (left: Prioritize, Assess, Select, Approve, Prepare, Implement, Maintain) with tools and templates to guide individuals through each step (below).
