As a Christian, social worker, and teacher I have come to realize that our most vulnerable children suffer from the same basic challenge: social Isolation and/or unhealthy connections. My work over the past 30 years has been to connect young people to healthy communities like schools, churches and meaningful work. The results have been astonishing. Connected children are more motivated, responsible and self-directed. One of my most effective tools has been the game of Chess. When used strategically, it serves as an "on ramp" to relationship building. This program shows you exactly how to use the game to build relationships, character and individual performance.
