Hip-Hop Chess Federation Announces Live The Game Summer Camp in San Jose!

 

HHCF Pushes To Improve Self Esteem & Academic Achievement With Summer Camps For Kids & Teens

 

June 6th 2013, San Jose, CA- The Hip-Hop Chess Federation (HHCF), is happy to announce their Live The Game Summer Camp will start in San Jose June 17th at  3590 Cas Dr, San Jose, CA . The HHCF is the first nonprofit (501c3) to fuse music, chess and martial arts to promote unity, strategy and nonviolence. “This city has seen a huge spike in violence over the past two years and we are doing our best to deliver innovative solutions to the youth” stated HHCF Founder, Adisa Banjoko.  To sign up go here now!

 

The Hip-Hop Chess Federation hosted their first event at the MLK Library in San Jose six years ago. Now they return to continue their mission of self-discovery and self-mastery through chess and the arts. National coverage of the HHCF and their programs have emerged with compelling  features in San Francisco Examiner, Fox Sports Midwest TV as well as  Forbes.com and  Black Enterprise.

 

“Our Live The Game classes have been something I’ve been developing for a long time” says  Banjoko. “The idea here is not to overwhelm kids with tons of new ideas or renegade philosophies. Rather, it is to help them use tools that are already present in their lives more effectively.” His themes on education innovation got HHCF an invitation to present this year at Harvard at University  and the World Chess Hall  of Fame in St. Louis, where Adisa and his team spoke to 1,000 kids in 48 hours (some them incarcerated).

 

Beyond chess for beginners and life strategies,  there will be fitness events to keep kids stay mentally and physically balanced. Special guests from the chess, music and martial arts world will make appearances from time to time at the camps to speak directly to the youth in attendance.

 

June 14th Adisa Banjoko will be the keynote speaker at 6th Annual Citywide Youth Conference in San Jose at the City Hall Rotunda. His topic will be The Art of Chess and Entrepreneurship.  

 

HHCF SUMMER CAMPS OFFER CLASSES IN:
