A Quick Word of Thanks, to the Children of Saint Louis
We just got this in the mail a while back. I wanted to share it and thank all the good people who we have come to know in the city of St. Louis. It is a beautiful city that does more to showcase the power in chess more than anywhere on earth.
When HHCF went there in October with RZA, our Director of Outreach and then again in November (thanks to a donation from Sinquefield Charitable Foundation) with Kevin Hwa, Director of Chess Education, we were blown away. We spent the bulk of our time playing chess with incarcerated kids at two juvenile halls and spoke to them about the benefits of chess, life, owning your actions, and actualizing your full potential.
We had a lot of fun, but really, we got to spend quality time with kids who could use a new smile and some sincere words in their lives. At the end of the day, we hope to have HHCF Life Strategies programs in all the juvenile halls here, and across the country. If you are interested in getting your juvenile hall staff trained in HHCF Life Strategies & Philosophies email firstname.lastname@example.org .
