The Newark Chess Club is a mentorship program whose goal is to transform the lives of Newark youth. We teach strategic theory and thought through chess, create mentor/mentee relationships for adults and children, produce the Newark High School Chess Tournament, and provide a safe space for people of all ages to enjoy playing chess in an environment specifically designed for the development of the youth, the engagement of the mind, and the advancement of the game.
