Progress with Chess is looking for volunteers that have an interest in chess to perform a variety of duties, depending on interest and level of skill. Areas of need are chess instructor, assistant instructor, tournament scorekeeper, etc. Students needing community service hours are welcome. Feel free to contact us and discuss the possibilities!



Progress with Chess is constantly approached by schools in low income areas that are interested in having our chess classes during school hours and after school. These programs cannot be funded through the parent pay model we use in the more affluent areas. All of our urban instruction is supported by foundations, corporations, and individual contributions. Your generous donation will help us to serve more schools in areas where funding is limited.

Our goal is to provide free tournaments in low income neighborhoods and free entry fees to our Greater Cleveland Scholastic League events for underprivileged students. Your contribution can help us to make this a reality!

We hope you agree that chess can provide great benefits to our youth and will consider making a tax deductible donation to Progress with Chess.
