Using video games to reach inner-city youths

There is a new school in Baltimore that uses video games to give disadvantaged students careers in video game development and design. They recently received news coverage for their efforts.

Urban Video Game Academy featured on CBS, WJZ-TV from Mikey Digital on Vimeo.

Here is a list of their objectives.

1. better prepare disadvantaged youth for college-level study in video game design and related fields such as computer science, digital art and engineering;
2. excite and inform disadvantaged youth about career alternatives in the video game design industry and related fields such as computer science, digital art and engineering;
3. instill in disadvantaged youth a positive self image and teach them teamwork, leadership skills, positive social interaction and good communication skills;
4. provide after-school and weekend activities that will keep disadvantaged youth engaged in productive activities; and
