LINC Chess Initiative
LINC believes that chess is a great way for children to learn and think strategically. We support active chess clubs in the afterschool program at many LINC Caring Communities sites. Students in LINC chess programs regularly compete in local tournaments. The programs use chess to enhance students' self-confidence, thinking skills and academic achievement.
