Educators have the widest reach to instruct chess to future students.

Also, on 10/27 we'll teach another LARGE chess session at New Canaan Library
with over 30 students and 10+ teen instructors on hand! This fall we will offer students, families (parents/guardians), girls only, and educators classes
separately & together!

Summer, '23
There's so much happening with Chessin1day this summer, '23! 
We have been hosting family & guardian classes because students learn best when they
continue practice at home with family.  We've had parents, caregivers, guardians, grandparents take class alongside their kids and  attend on their own!

Also new at Chessin1day are classes just for girls as we aim to close the gender gap in chess and have a
big demand for these specific classes.

Upcoming this June at New Canaan Library, CT we will host a
Girls Chess Instruction & Pizza Party!

In our April class we were so excited to teach chess to high school 
exchange students visiting from Argentina!
  🌟As always, we provide free chess classes, target our programming to underserved populations,
and continue to bring the benefits of chess to all.
