About Us

Youth Development Services Inc. develops critical thinking and analysis skills needed for the global economy.

The benefits of learning chess have been well documented by many educational professionals throughout the world. As we strive to compete in a global environment, it is critical to utilize every strategic advantage to help students close the achievement gap. Currently the United States is performing at 25th out of the top 30 countries academically. Research suggests that one way to quickly improve math and reading scores is to implement a chess program.

Youth Development Services, Inc. is devoted to providing chess instruction on site and in a remote on-line learning environment. We use technology to achieve our goals. The use of a blended teaching methodology will enable students to learn from an experienced chess instructor who will instruct students and guide them through the process of learning chess rules and strategies and online tournament play.
