Gameheads is a youth program at United Roots’ Youth Impact Hub. We use video games design, development and DevOps to engage, prepare and train low-income youth and youth of color ages 11 to 24 in the Bay Area — and advance tech inclusion. Through a powerful medium they are familiar with and passionate about, our youth learn how to code, design, manage projects, work in teams, lead, and create interactive projects that tell stories to enrich us all. In the process, they are graduating from high school, getting into college to pursue STEAM-related degrees and preparing themselves to enter the tech and video game industries.
