Life is a Chess Game. Do you want to play?
The Queen's Gambit Chess Institute is a Pittsburgh based non-profit organization dedicated to teaching chess to the community. We ensure every child has the necessary tools and opportunities to learn the game of chess through a 21st-century approach to education. We partner with local government, Remake Learning, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Public Schools, community centers, and other groups in the city to make chess accessible and used for educational and social benefits. One important aspect of the work we do is community-based projects. Students learn about real-world issues and use the strategy of chess to come up with achievable solutions. These issues range from racial inequalities, low-income housing, and lack of STEAM-focused learning. Some solutions include writing mock legislation to send to the local government, hosting advocacy events, and more.
