About Chess Girls DC
The mission of Chess Girls DC is to build the confidence of girls by teaching chess education to girls who have never played chess and supporting girls who currently play with activities that build confidence and improve STEM learning. With the intense level of destructive marketing which our girls are face with on a daily basis.The learning and the practice of chess is the most effective way to train our young girls to process information that will be presented throughout life, defending her position in the board room or defending a thesis. Chess strategies can be aligned with every aspect of education from math to reading or STEM education to economics.
Our curriculum is designed to increase the participation of girls as well as allow easy adjustment for students at a variety of skill levels.
The purpose of the lab is to study basic Chess concepts at a deeper level through conversations, guest speakers and craft activities using MATCH curriculum workbook. The enrichment activities will give students an opportunity to make ties between chess and other areas of knowledge such as math, history, geography, the arts and science. Students who are currently comfortable in playing chess tournaments will work through Checkmate Ideas for Students by John Bain. We will attempt to close any learning gaps in basic chess tactics. Students at all levels are welcome to participate in crafts.
Chess Girls DC is in need of volunteers, teachers and chess coaches for our program. There are many volunteer positions that do not require knowledge of Chess. Please share with your friends.

Chess Girls DC is unique because we understand how girls think and feel about themselves shapes their behavior in challenging circumstances. First and foremost we recognize every effort a girl puts forth in the pursuit of learning chess. Studies show that scientifically, confidence in one’s abilities has a significant impact on learning and performance on many levels. Self-belief about one’s ability determines how students motivate themselves and persevere in the face of difficulties and career choices. We are in alliance with the chess communities in Washington, DC. Girls who currently enjoy chess in their schools, libraries, churches or other venues are welcome to join our club for additional enrichment. Chess Girls DC is under the academic direction of Mr.Quito Swan, Ph.D. Chess Girls DC is an affiliate of the United States Chess Federation.
Chess Girls DC is a 501 (c) (3) organization.
