Violence Prevention and Character Development through Martial Arts for Peace
The Peaceful Champions program is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm during the summer, and 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm during the school year. The program has been designed to serve SED, EH, and At-Risk youth ages 5 through 13 and is also available for children participating in the School Board’s Extended School Year (ESY) program.
Thanks to the Children’s Services Council’s funding, we have three Broward County sites: one in the north of the county located at Cypress Run Education Center, one located centrally at the agency’s main location in Plantation, and one located in the southern part of the county at Whispering Pines Education Center.
For children meeting financial eligibility, the cost of the program is free thanks to a grant by the Children’s Services Council of Broward County. There is a sliding fee scale for children who do not meet this eligibility.
If you have interest in the program, please contact Smith Community Mental Health. We can be reached at (954) 321-2296 ext. 216 (Liat Kazes). Call to pre-register and an assessment will be scheduled as soon as possible.
