Check it out!
Brooklyn Castle, an independent documentary that looks at a year in the lives of several members of the chess team at I.S. 318 - a middle school where 65% of students are from homes living below the federal poverty level, which also has the best junior high school chess team, bar none, in the country!
The team wins against schools that have resources it could only dream of, and counts some of the best young players in the country among its members. (In fact, if Albert Einstein, who was rated about 1800, were to join the team, he'd only rank fourth.)
It features up-and-coming national chess stars including the New York Times featured James Black and Justus Williams -- who last year became the youngest African-American Chess Master in history.
Brooklyn Castle is NOT just a film about chess. It's a genuinely funny, moving and emotional testament to the potential for all young people to succeed.
These screenings not only help raise awareness about the deep importance of afterschool, but drive home how these programs can and do improve outcomes for under-served youth and literally save lives -- and inspire members of community to make a difference in their own local schools.

Oregon After School for Kids is a collaboration of public and private organizations and community members which seek to address common issues and concerns across all out-of-school time services - child care, recreation, education and youth development. Our goal is that all Oregon children, youth and families will have access to quality out-of-school time options within their communities. All services will enhance children's positive development, and future opportunities while keeping them safe from harm. All programs, services and activities will be of high quality and contribute to strong communities and schools.
Library summer reading programs, book clubs, homework helper, gaming @ the library, Lego club, anime club, teen advisory council and any library program for children and teens when they are not in school are afterschool programs. Library staff who implement programs for school-age children and teens when they are not in school are afterschool providers.
