Chess and Community

Life is the founder and executive director of Chess and Community, is a youth development organization that equips, exposes, and impacts youth with real world experiences through mentoring, traveling, and community service.  Programs are designed to expand students' perspectives on life and develop them to become leaders in their communities.  Our Motto, "Think Before You Move," challenges youth to take charge of their future and become instruments for change. We offer four programs to assist youth in their expansion, while working diligently to foster positive communication and interaction within the Athens community.
