Founded as a non-profit in 2000, we invested three years in developing a method of teaching chess that was worthy of classroom time, easy for teachers to implement, and made learning a wonderful experience for kids. The result was FIRST MOVE. Since 2003 we have had over 1.5 million kids go through the First Move chess program.
