Every aspect of the Game Loft program promotes the eight keys of Positive Youth Development as fundamental to program outcomes:

  • safety
  • belonging
  • self-worth
  • independence
  • relationships
  • achievement
  • recognition

These keys foster a belief that a young person has a future and that success is possible. The Game Loft operates during non-school hours, including school vacation and the summer months, offering developmentally appropriate recreation through a variety of non-electronic games and opportunities for community involvement that enrich academics, promote engagement in learning, build social and life skills, foster healthy family relationships, and guide youth to become caring, competent, confident, connected, and contributing adults.
