WHAT IS CHESS & COMMUNITY?

Chess and Community is a nonprofit, youth development organization that prepares youth to lead.  Our programs develop youth through community engagement and civic empowerment. We equip youth to build communities for collective uplift.  

 

WHAT DOES CHESS AND COMMUNITY DO?

Chess and Community prepares youth for career success, civic engagement, and healthy family life through mentorship, education, and service. While chess is the entry point for many of our participants, our experiential learning model builds entrepreneurial and job skills, enhances problem-solving abilities, and provides civic engagement experiences.
