Meet the Founder

My name is Chetan and I am a senior at Whitney Young Magnet High School playing on the varsity chess team. I've been playing chess for 9 years and have gained valuable experience in strategy and critical thinking skills.


My Mission: 

Help underrepresented students engage in a game I love for many reasons.

Chess is an excellent skill for children to learn, as it can provide several benefits, including:

  • Developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Improving memory and concentration

  • Encouraging creative and imaginative play, as kids develop new strategies to outmaneuver their opponents

  • Teaching patience and perseverance as chess is a slow and methodical game

  • Promoting sportsmanship and fair play by requiring players to follow rules and respect their opponent

Overall, chess is an excellent way for children to develop valuable academic and personal skills.




I hope you have a great time learning chess and we will make it an intriguing yet exciting experience!
