Hello Friends!


Thank you for continuing to be a part of Gameheads. Your ongoing support and participation is deeply appreciated.


As you know, our goal at Gameheads is to get youth of color (ages 11-25) and low-income youth excited and ready for careers in technology and electronic entertainment, enroll in postsecondary education and prepare for careers in STEM.


That’s why we are launching the #WhyWePlay campaign. We want to expand our program and reach more young people. We want to create the next generation of technology leaders and game designers. We want to help youth of color permeate the tech and video game industry, and create a more inclusive future. Through the end of the year, we will be sharing stories about #WhyWePlay and raising funds that will allow us to do just that.


We need your help. To get involved, share your stories about gaming as a tool for social change and personal and professional development on social media using the hashtag #WhyWePlay. We are including an editable PowerPoint where you can enter your story and your name to create your own graphic for social media.


You can also share our fundraising page with your friends, family and colleagues to help us raise funds to extend our programs:, and you can share our campaign on your social media channels.


Thank you for your support!
