Chess-In-Schools College Bound
Chess-in-the-Schools is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to improving academic performance and building self-esteem among inner-city public school children.
The College Bound program empowers New York City youth to continue their education beyond high school, become productive citizens, and give back to society by providing comprehensive college preparatory services and chess instruction in a safe and engaging environment.
Throughout each school year and summer, various activities, services, and instruction are provided to the participating New York City high school students to address each of these components. The participating students attend high schools throughout New York City and travel to the Chess-in-the-Schools offices in midtown Manhattan after school for the program.
