We are so excited to launch our first ever Video Games program! This program will be a unique and new program we are piloting that will integrate collaborative video games with social skills such as communication, problem-solving, and friendship building. We have intentionally chosen video games that are non-violent and collaborative in nature and have mature and especially skilled staff who will be leading the program.

Young people are invited to join us Online! We will be playing Minecraft, Rocket League and more in our new pilot video game program which will integrate social skills from the online program into real life and help bridge the gap for our participants between the two. Spend time working collaboratively with others mastering their favourite games, making friends, and doing what we all love - PLAYING VIDEO GAMES!
