LINC Chess

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.
