Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with Chess Corps!

Chess has long been considered an engaging and challenging recreational sport for individuals of all ages, but only until relatively recently has it been recognized as an activity that can result in tremendous educational, social, rehabilitative, and personal development benefits. Inspired by the numerous benefits of chess, Chess Corps was established to meld a group of new and seasoned chess players into a community of chess scholars who will challenge, teach, and support one another. Chess Corps offers unique chess enrichment programs which provide several different educational, cultural and social environments to chess enthusiasts of all ages.

Our programs incorporate disciplined learning, with social and emotional development in a relaxed format that encourages creativity, communication and self-fulfillment. Informing the experience is a thoughtful curriculum that draws upon methods of learning from diverse cultures and employs the latest tools and technology of our modern scientific society to reinforce and enhance the capacities and competencies of the students. Our faculty is experienced and dedicated to the mission of education and human development. Our leaders are continually searching for new ways to develop human intelligence and awareness to its maximum capacities.
