"Playing the game of chess facilitates the exchange of knowledge." 
          Thomas Clem


WHAT WE BELIEVE


The basic skills needed to live a more productive life continue to be those of decision-making, problem-solving, critical thinking, reasoning and self-discipline. Playing chess helps children academically, which positively impacts quality of life. 



Metro Atlanta Chess Partners, Inc. (MACP) is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization  founded by Thomas and Tonya Clem in 2015.  We extend the opportunity to play the game of chess to every child.


We teach the game of chess to youth in metro Atlanta communities and in after school programs.  MACP is a U.S. Chess Federation affiliate and hosts sanctioned/non-sanctioned chess tournaments throughout the year.
