Chess is a portable classroom. Let’s make Pittsburgh the city of chess. 

Mission Statement: The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute is an organization that teaches chess to the community, ensuring as many individuals as possible have the opportunity and necessary tools to learn the game chess through a 21st-century approach to studying the game. We are also seeking inclusion in a male-dominated sport.


Philosophy and Vision: Chess dedication, determination, innovation, outreach, and equality.

Target Market: Pre-K-12th grade. While Queen’s Gambit will work with college level students and adults, we believe it is necessary to foster chess learning in our younger generation, so in time, they can continue our progress and spread the mission statement.
