Community Service Opportunity!
Every Friday during the school year CAMP YDP’s Chess Club teaches children how to play chess, but we need your help! If you know any high school age children that would like to help we need them from 3:30 PM-5:30 PM on most Fridays. We leave from Hope Street in Ridgewood at 3:30 PM and return to Hope Street by 5:45 PM. Best of all no knowledge of chess is required and this is a great way for  students to earn credit for “Community Service!” For more information, please contact Marshall Katzman.
