Volunteer


Can you donate some time and energy to a non-profit organization which improves student academic abilities and school test scores as well as reduces juvenile delinquency and school dropout rates? Say Yes to Chess methods have been demonstrated to do all of the above! This non-profit works to enable students to experience success in an activity which translates directly to their academic success.
Say Yes to Chess provides chess classes, workshops clubs, camps, etc. at free or low-fee. By becoming involved in this effort, you can support the programs that can improve the lives of our Antelope Valley children. This non-profit is headquartered near the intersection of 40th and West Avenue J in Lancaster. You can be a part of this positive experience for our youth even if you don’t know how to play chess! If you have two to four hours, once or twice a week, which you can give to this cause, or if you want more information about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Say Yes to Chess Director, Ms. Daa, by email daa@mahowald.org or phone 661-466-6907.
