BLATINA CAREER EXPOSURE CAMPS
The BlaTina Career Exposure camps provide Black and Latina girls an exciting glimpse into the realm of opportunities that await them. In the past, Aspire House and Global Prep Academy worked together to put on the BlaTina Brainstorm and Girls Run the Game programs.
chess in the park
Chess in the Park is held at Frank Young Park across the street from Aspire House. Indy’s Inner-City Chess Club provides chess masters to teach all ages. Chess is linked to improving children’s concentration, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, and mathematical abilities. It is also said to help with memory storage and how our brains manage information. Playing the game of chess helps a person to develop strategies to use in life.
