WHAT IS CHESS & COMMUNITY?
Chess and Community is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering young people in Athens, Georgia and beyond. We believe in the power of chess to inspire critical thinking, problem-solving, and conflict resolution skills in youth. In addition to chess, we also offer robotics, STEM, and debate programs that help young people develop a wide range of skills and interests. Our programs are designed to expose young people to new opportunities and prepare them to be leaders in their communities. We are committed to helping youth reach their full potential and become exceptional in all of their present and future endeavors.
