One of our newest programs, Chess, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of San Francisco Ethnic Ministries and Chess club is scheduled to start in mid-October 2020. The program will focus on teaching kids the fundamentals of the game of chess in a safe and structured environment.

Classes will be held once a week on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00PM during the spring/ fall session. We will be offering a summer camp in July that will virtually meet on Tuesdays from 2:00PM-3:00PM and on Thursdays 11:00AM-12:00PM. Registration for the summer camp will start in June.

The program will initially be taught on Zoom and transition to in-person classes once COVID restrictions are lifted. *** Please note, a COVID-19 Liability Waiver needs to be on file prior to participating in the in-person program.***

The chess program is FREE to all participants and all required materials will be provided.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact the PAL Office at (415)401-4666 or Email us:
