Enriching communities, one move at a time

The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute is a Pittsburgh based non-profit organization dedicated to teaching chess to the community, ensuring every child has the opportunity and necessary tools to learn the game through a 21st century approach to education. Queen’s Gambit provides strategy based-consulting and leads initiatives in Western Pennsylvania to use chess as a means of community and economic development. Founded on the belief that chess ignites strategic planning skills, Queen’s Gambit uses the strategy of the game to create social and educational change.

The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute is seeking for dedicated, driven and strategic minded individuals to serve on the Board of Directors. Some responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Attending at least three board meetings (the board meets five times a year)
  • Serving on at least one committee
  • Being an advocate for chess in the community
