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 necessary tools and opportunities to learn the game of chess through a 21st-century approach to education. We use strategy and critical thinking to impact Pittsburgh through various educational, social, political, and economic initiatives and regional partnerships.
“The most powerful piece is the queen.”
