Strengthen your skills and make a friend across the chess board! DOROT’s Intergenerational After School Chess program fosters a setting where wisdom and curiosity meet face-to-face, building mutually beneficial relationships in the process. Once a week during the academic year (in both our Manhattan and Westchester locations), students in grades 6 - 12 and seniors teach and learn chess from one another. The program enables all participants to play chess, share stories and create meaningful connections.
