Reaching our 5k goal will allow 25 kids to take a 12 week session. The grades and emotional well being of the students will be tracked and documented in a short video. You will be able to see the direct impact of your donation.
Our goal is to scholarship local kids in here and train them in chess and life strategies and jiu-jitsu. Your donation will make sure they have the space, the jiu-jitsu gi (what they wear while training) teachers and tutors needed to take them to the next level.Most of the kids I’ve worked with are from tough areas. The bulk are Black and Latino but we work to help everybody we can. In the HHCF we know that the power of and team, is in its diversity. We plan to build our program in the facility first and then spread it across Oakland the the rest of the bay (and the country really). Our previous programs have been in San Francisco, Hayward, and San Jose. These classes will be held in our new Fremont, HQ. We will make a short video of the kids in the program so you see the results for yourself.
Simply put, American education has been in a state of emergency. Many of our schools and families are broken. Some of our children are being fed right into juvenile hall by corrupt judges. Basically, folks are investing in the failure of our people. I’m asking you to help us counter that by supporting HHCF so we can help kids do better in school and in life on the streets. Once the initial 5k has been raised we will put out a special press release and add a section to our site www.hiphopchess.com that lists your name and your brand on our site, honoring our commitment to working with HHCF to help pave new paths to education and peace.
