Teachers Make Great Chess Instructors
April 4, 2016 - Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in students lives? Or to just do some good while sharing your enjoyment of chess?
Freedom Chess Academy is looking for a volunteer, part-time chess instructor to assist in teaching beginning players once or twice a week.
