Two skills are taught, simultaneously. Kids learn to trace a letter from the alphabet thus perfecting their penmanship while learning a new “chess term” that starts with that particular letter. These new terms will be used later while playing the game.

Cameron is a true success story. As a teenager Cameron was the victim of abuse, bullying and taunting. His case which gained national attention, exposed the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of a female teacher. As in many such cases, race and entitlement played a big factor and Clarkson, then a young teenager was vilified instead of the adult teacher. The one-time high school football phenom turned to alcohol to lessen the sting of the trauma. There were many dark days but today Mr. Clarkson credits chess as the vehicle, which helped him to break his drinking habit. He is now happy to say that he is living a very profitable life of sobriety. Once down and out, Cameron has overcome his hurdles and is giving back to his neighborhood.

Thinking your moves through and trying to play the best move that you can is rewarding while playing too quickly and rushing your decisions can have negative repercussions. Chess can help you to think ahead, not rush your decisions, and weigh the pluses and minuses of your choices. This correlates to challenges we face in everyday life, and just as in chess, we try to make the best choices to develop positive outcomes for our lives.”
