By the end of February, The Richmond Chess Initiative will become The Scholarship Chess Business Center. We are pushing to continue our mission with tournament chess training! Tournaments are the essential start to developing a complete chess personality! We train and pay players of any age to be better players, certified coaches, certified referees, and organizers. Job training. We are teaching people of all ages how to bolster their high school applications, college applications, and resumes with national chess certifications and a work or entrepreneurial history. Through our Pre-Scholarship Stimulus Program, we find jobs for parents and students with local businesses. We provide training in Commercial Money, Loans, and Credit to inspire an ageless understanding of entrepreneurship. To young people, we explain in great detail the workings of scholarships so that they understand the value inherent in their every day activities. Our ultimate goal being to create a workforce ready candidate that can pursue any goal anywhere on the globe!
