Chess strengthens young minds, builds confidence, and cultivates character.
It breaks down barriers between genders, ages, and ethnicities, bringing together children from a broad spectrum of social and cultural backgrounds. As confidence grows and traits like character and sportsmanship get stronger, young chess players develop lasting habits and skills they’ll draw on for the rest of their lives.
Our mission is to help kids thrive through chess. If that mission resonates with you, we hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about who we are and what we do, and we’d be happy to hear from you any time.
