CHEXS – Who we are and what we do?

CHEXS is an award winning charity that works with schools and agencies within Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas. CHEXS offers targeted support to families, children and young people with low confidence and self – esteem attributed to low academic attainment. 
CHEXS provides children and young people with support outside of the school curriculum via outdoor experiences. Team building and volunteering projects incorporate the use of many natural materials and peer mentoring to provide raised confidence and self- esteem. The aim is to increase skills and resilience for the future.
