Make a Chess Move

At Make a Chess Move, an organization committed to dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline and teaching common sense education, the game of chess symbolizes real-life situations. This Caring for Denver grant recipient offers in-school and community-based programs in East Denver. Their mission is to build a just society by developing tenacious learners, compassionate leaders, and ethically driven critical thinkers.

Listen to our interview with Ge Wright and Elijah Huff as they discuss Make a Chess Move’s journey and the chess tactics that can be applied to real life.
