Interested parties are invited to contact Chess in Education – US, a 501(c)(3) public charity using the email form below or at the address shown on their website.

Service Providers

The CIE Coalition seeks engagement with local education and chess training service providers looking to expand their extracurricular chess training programs into the classroom by engaging with educators through the use of education-centric training programs.

We envision a future in which a network of local and regional education/chess training service providers are able to offer an established and certified CIE program recognized by the Education authorities. Much of the enabling infrastructure for this is already in place. Programs like this are flourishing in in Europe. ChessPlus provides such an established program in Europe under the auspices of the European Chess Union and is expanding to other continents. Chess in Education – US in collaboration with ChessPlus is looking to build a network of certified CIE service providers in the US.
