My name is Mike Callaham. The name of our US Chess Affiliate is, “Scholarship Chess Business Center”. Formerly the Richmond Chess Initiative. We help chess players of all ages earn scholarship, employment, and entrepreneurial opportunities. In the last 8 years we’ve made over 1800 visits to schools, libraries, and special events within the Richmond city limits.
We are looking for people who love chess to help us coach, increase awareness, and fund raise. If you really love chess and like what you see, we have permanent part time positions available!! How great would that be? Just imagine being able to earn $300.00, $400.00, $500.00, or $600.00 a week because you fell in love with a chessboard! It’s possible and I’ll show you how!

There are no right or wrong answers, I’m just trying to get to know you!! Just answer the questions as best you can, copy and paste them into an email with your name and phone number and I will call you the same or next day and explain everything!
