Vanguard Initiative, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that works with underserved youth here in Phoenix, AZ. Vanguard Initiative’s mission is to revitalize the melanoid community through the advancement of our youth. Vanguard Initiative advocates youth empowerment through recreation, life skill development, social awareness and career exposure.
Chess is a great way to integrate competition, critical thinking and leisure without over emphasizing one aspect. Through repetition and understanding the concept of the game, players inherently develop and improve many cerebral skills while having fun.
Vanguard Initiative’s social awareness topic is “Interacting with law enforcement and policing your own community.”
Vanguard Initiative intends to provide participants with clarity about the purpose of law enforcement, productive ways for us to interact with law enforcers, and the significance of everyone’s contribution to policing our own community. Local professionals actively serving and/or with experience in law enforcement/criminal justice will be present.
