LINC believes that chess is a great way for children to learn and think strategically.
In 2018-19, LINC will be playing chess at 47 different LINC Caring Communities sites (see map) and plan on holding five different chess tournaments.
The programs use chess to enhance students' self-confidence, thinking skills and academic achievement.
