Will use game of chess to teach critical reasoning skills
to break cycle of youth crime and violence
Orrin Hudson and his organization, Be Someone, have partnered with the DeKalb County Police East Precinct to host a Youth Summer Chess Initiative on July 2nd in Lithonia. The program’s goals are to break the cycle of crime, violence, and poverty by changing the game and promoting peace in the community.
Be Someone was founded in Atlanta in 2001 by Mr. Hudson, who credits the game of chess of teaching him important life skills that put him on a path to success growing up. Mr. Hudson now uses chess to promote self-esteem and analytical thinking in at-risk youth, while teaching them honesty, responsibility and patience. Mr. Hudson has touched the lives of more than 50,000 kids through his program.
The event, which is free for all youth, grades K-12, will take place on Saturday, July 2, 2016 from 10:00am-12:00pm at:
