The MACM mission is to build a just society by developing tenacious learners, compassionate leaders, and ethically driven critical thinkers. MACM is intentionally designed to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline by developing the abilities of youth to reduce destructive decision-making and increase pro-social behavior in their schools and communities. MACM uses compassion and ethical decision making to develop grit in students to tenaciously set and attack their goals to create a just society. MACM builds human capital by training new MACM Student Facilitators to build trust and develop positive peer and adult relationships that foster marketable team management skills, confidence, and positive community activities.

Through the game of chess, MACM has designed a research-based curriculum that identifies and targets positive youth protective factors and the reduction of youth risk factors. At the core of MACM is a team of youth leaders and program facilitators who have grown up in the neighborhoods and attended the schools served by the organizations. MACM uses a research-based strategy to transform its invaluable street grit into critical, ethical thinking to build a better world using the game of chess. The MACM curriculum has been a successful program for 7 years teaching critical thinking to youth through in school and out of school time programming. MACM has served close to 1000 youth, and accumulated over 26,000 hours of volunteer service since 2014. The MACM curriculum has been taught at numerous schools (Manual High School, DSST-Cole, Manual McAuliffe, Bruce Randolph School, Rise Up Community School and Delta High School) and with non-profit organizations.

What does your business/company do? Whose needs does your business/company address? Who do you serve?

The MACM team’s lives have been overwhelmed with systemic injustices that threaten the fulfillment of the American Dream of a just society. They have attended too many funerals, seen too many dropout, and have felt the sting of jail doors slamming shut. The MACM team knows the school-to-prison pipeline because they lived it. Yet their grit, intelligence, and compassion have survived. These systematic injustices tear families apart, cause deep grief for communities, and wound many beyond repair for generations. Their academic success did not keep them off the school-to-prison track. Not all the critical thinking skills developed in school could overpower the multiple risk factors they encountered daily.
