Our Team

ChessPals is proud of the team that powers our chess programs. We have assembled a diverse group of high school students who are strong chess players and love to teach. We are motivated by the aha moments when a student learns how the pieces move, sees a chess tactic on the board or makes their first checkmate. We see how our students learn patience while waiting for their opponent to move and learn how to plan ahead by thinking through strategy. 

We are grateful to the student leaders who run the program behind the scenes in their chapters leading outreach to schools, recruiting teachers, training and scheduling classes.


 We are advised by a talented group of professional chess players, educators and nonprofit leaders who are committed to helping ChessPals achieve our mission of enhancing our student's lives through the game of chess.
