ICYMI: Detective Cookie’s Chess Club

The creation of the Urban Youth Chess Club stemmed from Detective Cookie many opportunities to speak with youth in the community while observing their needs, as well as the needs of their families. The youth made it apparent to me that they desired something other than just basketball…they requested they wanted Chess. Det. Cookie had no idea chess would become so popular and warrant the need for it to continue past the original two months. Based on the popularity and the need for the Urban Youth Chess Club, Det. Cookie with the support of the Seattle Police Department and many others who have assisted with this dream, the Urban Youth Chess Club has made its 11th year anniversary.
