Start a Chess Club
Don't know where to start? We can help. Can't play well? It doesn't matter. You just need organizational skills, time and the desire.
Even if you know just the rules of how to play chess, help someone else to learn.
In a group or organization?
Volunteer at a VA chess recreational therapy program
Contact your local VA hospital's recreation therapy department. If they don't offer chess, volunteer yourself to facilitate and start one. You really just need to know the rules and to be dependable. Meet at least bi-weekly. You can contact us for help if you need to.
