Local police officers are teaming up to mentor children in the classroom, one chess match at a time.





The group Progress with Chess is working with students in nine Cleveland schools.

“It teaches them immediate consequences to their actions. It teaches them accomplishment,” said Detective Carl Bowers. “You see the best and the brightest. Kids that maybe can throw a football. Kids that can think and use their minds to achieve. To us, chess is life.”
