Global Kids is now enrolling for the 2010 LEVEL UP! Gaming Summer Bootcamp for Youth.
Designed for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, this week-long summer intensive will train youth in basic game design, global literacy, and how to combine the two into a serious game design addressing a critical social issue.

About Level Up!

Level Up! is a one week-long summer camp designed for entering high school sophomores, juniors and seniors that will run from July 26th - 30th, running from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m each day.
According to the Pew Research Center, 97% of American youth play digital games. That should come as no surprise. Youth also want to learn how they can make a difference, in their community and around the world. Increasingly, youth are combining the two, playing, analyzing and now even building their own games designed to raise awareness and inspire action around issues as broad as the genocide in Darfur, our environmental impact, McDonald's food policies, and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Since 2002, Global Kids has been on the forefront of what is now called the Serious Gaming Movement, working with NYC-youth to develop two successful and award winning games while supporting other institutions, like the New York Public Library and MOUSEsquad, to do the same. Global Kids has now created Level Up!, a serious game design boot camp, to support the next generation of youth leaders informed by games-based learning.  At the same time, youth will be provided with career and college readiness opportunities over the course of the camp.
Camp Details:
The program will run from July 26th - 30th, running from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday. On the last day, Friday, July 30th, from 6:00 - 7:30, there will be a closing event, organized around a youth presentation, open to all family members and friends.
All activities will occur within the Global Kids offices at 137 East 25th street.
