Finally the Hip-Hop Chess Federation has found a place we can call home! Its located in the Bay Area in Fremont, CA (right between Oakland and San Jose)! We need your help to open an HHCF Community Center here in the Bay Area. The HHCF has worked with over 1200 kids K-12 over the past 3 Summer breaks. At least 40% of these kids are on scholarship participants. Things were looking dim for a while. But we are happy to say we found a place. But we need your help! The HHCF needs to raise funds for the lease and set up equipment, and facility supplies. Help HHCF Kids – Donate today! Your donation will create a hub to enable youth and teens to learn chess, martial arts (anti-bullying classes) and music studio.
The Hip-Hop Chess Federation is the worlds first non-profit to fuse music, chess and martial arts to promote unity, strategy and nonviolence. Our organization has been seen in Forbes, SJ Mercury, NY Times and Good Morning America. Our organization recently expanded to Los Angeles with the help of RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan (who serves as our Director of Outreach). LISTEN to our panel discussion with Emilio Rivera of Sons of Anarchy as we talk about the importance of music, chess and martial arts in the lives of our youth.
We are excited to have this opportunity to have a space to call home. This will allow us to teach chess, Hip-Hop, and martial arts as well as academic tutoring and youth mentoring groups for youth of all ages.
