There are several ways you can contribute:

Become a Coach: While we can provide compensation for coaches, we truly value volunteer coaches who help us keep our costs low. Becoming a coach is a significant commitment, but the rewards are even greater.

Volunteer at Tournaments: We're always in need of volunteers to assist in running our tournaments. This can involve setting up chess boards, acting as judges, or helping distribute snacks to the kids.

Join Our Board: Our board of directors plays a crucial role in overseeing our operations. We're actively seeking individuals to join our board and bring diverse perspectives that will enable us to better serve the students in our clubs.

By contributing your time and expertise in any of these ways, you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students and help us continue our mission of using chess to empower and educate.
