YK&Q CHESS CLUB CELEBRATE VICTORY
Young Kings and Queens Chess Club and Mentoring program held a chess tournament and
victory party for youth this President’s Day, Monday, February 18. The program was celebrating
a recent victory of a team from World View High School. The goal of the day was
to teach the youth that the tournaments aren’t about winning or losing, but about building
bonds and closer relationships, while learning from one another and understanding yourself.
Since school was closed, the event took places in the community with the help and
support from NYC Motorcars, Eastwood Manor and Eastchester Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
