Welcome to The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute! We are a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching chess to the community, ensuring every child has the necessary opportunities and tools to learn the game through a 21st-century approach to learning. We focus on promoting, sharing, and encouraging the educational and social benefits of playing chess. In partnership with the Pittsburgh city government, Pittsburgh Public Schools, and other educational organizations, Queen’s Gambit seeks to make the city a portable classroom for chess. Queen’s Gambit was founded on the belief that chess provides relevant, engaging, and equitable learning experiences that can remodel how youth learn and grow.
