Game to Grow is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the use of games of all kinds for therapeutic, educational, and community growth.  Our therapeutic social skills groups (which we call “social flourishing groups” help youth and adults become more confident, creative, and socially capable through the intentional facilitation of customized, collaborative gaming experiences. We’re most well known for our use of tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, though we use many different games in our therapeutic social skills groups. Many of the kids, teens, and adults in our social flourishing groups struggle with social confidence and building community. Our groups help build social confidence, reduce isolation, and form friendships that last. Though a diagnosis isn’t required, commonly supported populations include autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and more. We also provide training, consultation, and support to other therapeutic and gaming professionals, educators, parents, and advocates, so that even more individuals can benefit from the life-enriching power of play.

“Thank you for this amazing opportunity! My son left the group radiant and smiling, more relaxed and talkative than I have seen him in a year. This is just exactly what he needs. …He lives in his head a lot of the time, and this is giving him a perfect venue to connect with others about what’s going on in there. So great!!”
