Digitisation of youth services

Using video games to support young people

97% of young people play video games, be it on consoles, computers or on their phones. It’s where they feel comfortable and safe.

At the Institute of Games we believe we can engage young people better if we use video games and its surrounding culture.

We’re currently developing two products to support professionals reach out to young people.

Please contact us for more information.

 

Introducing young people to video game careers

In our work with at-risk young people we’ve noticed that many have incredible knowledge about gaming. We see this as a strength and use it to re-engage them back into formal education.

This student-lead, 10 week program explores game design, programming, esports, sound, storylines, level design, and more… It’s purpose is to spark an interest in careers in gaming and provide insight into pathways to achieve this.
