The Loyalty Foundation is grateful to be featured on the Kids Are Online, a special project by Aspen Digital dedicated to closing the digital divide for young people. (Aspen Digital is the website for The Aspen Institute, an international nonprofit organization "committed to realizing a free, just, and equitable society.")
"The Kids Are Online gives you real-life examples of how to improve access to tech tools and skills for youth in America, so that communities like yours can adapt these approaches for yourselves. Sourced from local governments, nonprofits, businesses, and schools, these stories of change demonstrate what’s possible when we get young people connected and help them thrive in a digital world."
In our story, titled, "A Fun & Educational Gaming Program For High School Students" The Loyalty Foundation shared how we address the problem of, "Lack of engaging and fun technology skills training for young people" with our Gaming4Good program: "courses in coding and video game creation to give high school students real-world technology skills."
“Kids love games, and we wanted to meet them where they were and inspire a sense of community and love for technology… We want them to learn to problem-solve, create solutions, and be inspired to create their own games while learning real-world tech skills," says our Founder and CEO, David Neeman in the story.
"We envision a future where digital and information ecosystems empower communities and strengthen democracy. Our mission is to connect and spark policy action among those crucial to making our interconnected world accessible, safe, and inclusive — both online and off." – Aspen Digital
