One of the most accredited quotes ever mentioned is “Life is like a game of chess. Make your next move your best move.” Youth mentor and anti-violence activist Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson comes into play to help save young lives. Hudson, the founder of Be Someone (www.BeSomeone.org), will bring his life-size chessboard to help metro Atlanta students prepare for the real world and make better choices to avoid dangerous situations. Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson is encouraging all parents, caretakers, teachers, and staff to bring their kids to a free leadership workshop on Saturday, March 17th starting at 10 a.m.

The objective is to teach young people how to respect others, use critical thinking before making dangerous moves, and become more of a giver instead of a taker. Local students will also learn a new currency called KASH, which stands for Knowledge, Attitude, Skills, and Habits. Hudson will show young people how those characteristics can alter their lives for the better. Hudson’s life-changing message to the youth is included in the following:

  • Get Your Heads Up
  • Get Your Pants Up
  • Get Your Grades Up
  • and Never Give Up

The free leadership workshop, hosted by Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson, will take place on Saturday, March 17th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The workshop will be held at the Be Someone Training Center located at 949 Stephenson Road, Stone Mountian, GA 30087. Due to limited seating, attendees are encouraged to RSVP at orrin@besomeone.org to reserve a seat. Vendors, sponsors, and volunteers are welcome to attend this workshop.
