It's Your Move

Help Us Help Kids Be Someone

Why this Program Matters

Every day there seems to be more news about crime and violence in our local schools and communities. Once an at-risk high school student, Be Someone founder Orrin Hudson knows what it's like to lack direction. Today, through his motivational programs and chess lessons, he is helping thousands of kids stay out of trouble and lead successful lives "one move at a time". Watch Orrin talk about the program here.

Juvenile courts in the U.S. handle nearly 1.4 million delinquency cases per year.

The U.S. Government spends more money on incarcerated people than on each child in the public school system.

The U.S. locks up a larger share of its youth population than any other developed country.

After-school activities for children are decreasing as schools deteriorate and city parks and recreational facilities suffer funding cutbacks.
