Students at the award winning non-profit, Chess Without Borders, are on a journey to help others but along the way they discovered that their service benefits them as much as it benefits others. They discovered new skills, reaped rich rewards for their community and shared their talents with a wide range of diverse people and places. “We are more like global citizens,” said 16-year-old Toby Schwartz. Over the last 15 years they have donated almost $120,000 to various local and global charities. Funds were raised in collaboration with community volunteers, local schools and businesses. The program was founded by Rishi Sethi in 1998 and adopted by 2008 US Chess Champion GM Yury Shulman in 2006. The program combines learning chess with service and philanthropy.
