About Us


Project Pawn is the thoughts, dreams, and aspirations of three young men from New York City manifested. This company embodies the vision and values adopted by each of these men while growing up and later on “graduating” from the rough & rugged streets of The Bronx.

What started out as a conversation between two friends, and later on a third, quickly transformed into a social contagion and vehicle for change.  Project Pawn is about inspiration.  Showing youth that they too can rise above all their current trials and  tribulations and do whatever it is they aspire to do; just like Abdul, Chris, and Dewane have done.

We are change agents who want to use the game of chess to inspire generations to come  to see their lives’ dreams come to fruition no matter what gender, race, color, creed,  religion, or circumstance.
