Global Kids is incredibly excited to launch this year's Playing 4 Keeps (P4K) game design program in partnership with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and E-Line Media and with support from the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in the New York Community Trust!
This year, GK youth who join P4K have the unique opportunity to both learn game design skills and train other youth around the city who are part of the Hive Learning Network NYC. GK youth will support Hive youth to develop game design skills and participate in the National STEM Video Game Challenge. At the same time, Global Kids and E-Line staff will support and train adult staff at Hive organizations to implement game design programs.
Even more exciting is that this year we have five returning youth from last year's P4K program who will serve as peer mentors! Tremayne, Jason, Kendell, Ednica, and Jared will help us co-facilitate sessions, support other youth, and of course be part of the student workshops we will be offering to Hive youth.
P4K meets every Wednesday at GK. Check the P4K page for blog updates!
