Founder and co-founder of Chess4Community
GC360 SEASON 2 EPISODE 10
Mannat and Amanat Jain, the dynamic duo behind Chess4Community, initiated a program in Garden City, New York, to teach chess to seniors. Drawing from their own chess-learning journey under their grandparents' guidance, they addressed the absence of organized chess initiatives in their locality. Their efforts led to the establishment of a flourishing self-sustained chess club, catering to various age groups and culminating in friendly tournaments.
Their transition from India to Garden City brought about a lifestyle shift, though not without adaptation. Their innovative approach resonated, creating an engaging learning environment for the community. Beyond chess, their diverse pursuits include robotics, coding, reading, and active participation in the USCF ranking system. Their commendable achievements inspire their community, and updates about their endeavors can be found on their Instagram page.
