Check Mate! Students Learn Sportsmanship and Strategy through Chess

Last month, Latino Network launched a new partnership with the program Chess for Success! 

"Our youth LOVE Chess 4 Success!" Said Joaquin Lopez, our Arts and Culture Manager. "They're learning strategy, patience, and friendly competition, tools that will continue to develop as they grow and build character. Chess has no language barriers, once you know the steps and moves, everyone can participate is this time-honored dance of strategy and sportsmanship."

We decided to pay a visit this last week and see how the students were coming along!
