About Us

Chess Mates enhances primary education through creation and support of after-school chess programs in public schools in the Seattle area of Washington State. The Chess Mates programs focus on chess as a teaching tool. Learning and playing chess helps children build future life and work skills.

Chess clubs meet after classes in Seattle area elementary and middle schools once a week, October through May, at the school facilities. Chess Mates provides all teaching materials, chess equipment and a trained instructor.

The programs are accessible to all children regardless of race, gender, physical ability, or economic situation.

Chess Mates is funded by tax-deductible donations from individuals, companies and private organizations.
