We have been working with Broward Education Foundation to deliver workshops and help grow the Next Move chess initiative for all grades and for community programs. Click the dates to read our Next Move reports: Our first report covers October 2014 through May 2015. The second covers June 2015 through December 2016. These are great to share with administrators and potential partners.
On June 26, 2017, we presented an interim report covering our first six months of operations as The Sunrise Center for Excellence in Chess to the Sunrise City Commission. On August 23, 2017, we presented a supplemental report showing activity from the summer. These are also available for public review; click the links!
On January 12, 2018, we provided a final report to the Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council on a grant they supplied that was then matched by Broward Education Foundation. The grant served two different audiences: at-risk youth in the community, and young offenders already in the juvenile justice system. You can read that report here. This program has continued with a grant from the Broward Sheriff's Office and we are working on longer-term funding now.
LATEST NEWS: An article about our programs is featured in the April 2018 issue of Chess Life, the official magazine of the US Chess Federation.
