Chess is a great educational tool for schools. Before, during, and after-school programs are extremely popular and for good reason. Chess is a low cost activity for children to become involved with right at their own school. Children of different ages, backgrounds, and special needs can all take part in a chess class or club. It also helps you learn how to be calm under pressure. Mohan Raju

Chess as a confidence builder. Chess is all you – you put in the time studying, you put in the time competing in tournaments, you spend the time analyzing your losses and finding your weaknesses. With all this work a sense of confidence is developed. Even working through a tough period where you plateau in your chess development can help you build resilience and confidence.

Sreevatsav

Chess helps problem solving skills.
In every chess game, you are faced with challenges and problems that you have to solve in order to play your best game. It helps you to think ahead, not rush your decisions, and weigh the pluses and minuses of your choices. The correlates to challenges we face in everyday life, like in chess, we  make our best to develop positive outcomes for our lives.
