Our mission is to use the growing industry of video games to teach scholars how to cope with, avoid and stop bullying from both sides. We want to inspire students to build relationships, gain self worth and respect others.
HOT 97's HipHopGamer and Tivon Skinner, Founder/CEO of CraftKeepers Inc, share the same passion for empowering youth through their interests.
They were motivated to take the art of gaming to students as a disarming means for provoking a larger conversation around bullying, communication, and tolerance.
HipHopGamer and his brand partner Logitech G pair up with CraftKeepers to bring the Gaming & Guidance program to the youth in the New York and New Jersey metro area.
The assembly is a 2 hour high energy and engaging experience with a video game competition, prizes, celebrity guest panel discussion and a scholar Q&A session.
We ask the school principal to provide top 8 scholars to participate in the gaming tournament.
This can be an incentive for student attendance, academics or extracurricular excellence in the days leading up to the event.
During our guidance portion of the program panelist share their personal stories of adversity and talk about issues such as bullying, depression/anxiety, insecurities, learning disabilities and much more.
Celeb panelists have included Hot 97 and Cardi B's official DJ Sparks, actor Jas Anderson and politician and former member of the grammy winning Hip Hop Group Lords of the Underground, Dupre "Do It All" Kelly.
Our Q&A session lets scholars share their experiences, triumph and struggles with bullying while asking our panelists for guidance on how to overcome these issues.
The goal is to promote empathy, let them know that they are not alone and that their passions and goals can lead them to achieving their dreams.
