Chess Facilitators

Trusted leaders in the community who support The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute and a chess presence in Pittsburgh. Actively discuss the important benefits of chess within their institution, work to connect QGCI with opportunities within their institution, and promote our services in the community when possible. Under the direction of Ashley Lynn Priore, founder and CEO of The Queen’s Gambit, chess facilitators will independently offer The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute’s services and mission statement to those interested within their institution and in the community. Chess is a portable classroom for a well-rounded education through academics, cognitive growth and development, and life skills.
