Don't just game. Game to grow!

We all feel better when we connect, learn, and play together. 

At Game to Grow, we serve players from all over the world in weekly therapeutic gaming groups, provide robust training in applied games to mental health professionals, educators, and community members, and offer individual counseling services. We are dedicated to the use of games for therapeutic, educational, and community growth and are proud to be a leader known for moving the field of applied games forward!

Here’s what we do:

Therapeutic game-based social groups: Game to Grow groups are a safe, supportive, and fun environment for our youth and adult participants to improve social confidence, reduce isolation, and form friendships that last. We honor neurodiversity, never assuming a deficit that needs correcting, and support participants to flourish on their own terms. In addition to our open-enrollment tabletop role-playing (TTRPG) and Minecraft programs, we also offer groups specifically for hospitalized youth, youth in the foster care system, and LGBTQ+ youth. 

Trainings in the Game to Grow Method: We train others to use games to benefit their own communities! Our comprehensive training offerings for mental health professionals, educators, and community members are our best multipliers of our impact - bringing inclusive, supportive games to people around the world. Live and on-demand trainings and workshops are available no matter where you are in your applied TTRPG journey – from “never picked up a die” to “expert GM” – we have trainings designed to support you.

Individual counseling services: Game to Grow offers individual counseling and psychological assessment services to children, adolescents, and adults. Our therapists identify as geeks and gamers and have diverse specialties (e.g., neurodivergence, trauma, LGBTQIA+) to meet the diverse needs of those we serve. 

Here’s where you come in:

We need your support to ensure Game to Grow is able to keep reaching more individuals and improving our services!

We believe that the sense of joy, wonder, and inclusion that intentional gaming brings should be available to everyone. Each new group we run, each facilitator we hire, and each training we provide gets us closer to that goal. Your GiveBIG gift makes this possible!
