In chess, the queen is the most powerful piece on the board. Although every player begins the game with only one queen, every pawn has the potential to become a queen. In theory, it is possible to transform all 8 pawns into queens, thus creating a position in which there are 9 queens on the board. 9 Queens is a metaphor for the all too often unrealized capacity to empower all children through chess.
9 Queens is dedicated to empowering individuals and communities through chess by making the game fun, exciting, and accessible. They offer free chess education programs specifically designed to promote critical thinking skills, academic performance, and self-confidence. Their mission is to use chess as a tool to motivate, empower, and engage under-served and under-represented populations to realize their potential and achieve academic and personal success.
