DACIS Needs Help!
Please volunteer time or money.
DACIS teaches chess to inner city kids. We think it helps their grades and their self esteem. However we are lacking instructors. Anyone who wishes to teach chess in a DISD school, please contact Donna Szumilla. Note: both volunteer and paid instructors are needed.
In order to pay the instructors, DACIS is asking for your help. We are a 501(C)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible. We appreciate any support that you can give us.
Please send donations to the following:

Dallas Area Chess-In-The-Schools (DACIS) uses the game of chess to teach critical thinking skills to Dallas area youth. Studies have shown that teaching chess to school children, even those performing poorly in the classroom, can improve their academic skills.
