Hi there! We're thrilled that you're interested in Chess and Community. Since forming in 2009, our goal has been to shape the minds of the youth of Athens-Clarke County, teaching them useful life lessons and the values of being a contributing citizen to society. Wondering if our organization is the right fit for your student?


Here's a Q&A with our founder!
