This social group uses the popular video game Minecraft to help players connect and communicate with each other as they co-create a fantastic world.
The group is facilitated in person at the Game to Grow headquarters, and players will have the opportunity to continue building at home between sessions. Participants will build skills related to planning and follow-through, collaborative communication, compromise and self-advocacy—all while playing a game they love and celebrating a shared interest.
This group occurs at the Game to Grow office in Kirkland, from 6:30 to 8:00 on Friday nights for 11 sessions: January 17 to April 3, with no group February 21st. The facilitators for this group are Johnny Spangler and Kerry Jarvi.
Participants must have experience with the computer version of Minecraft. Console and tablet versions of Minecraft won’t translate well to the PC version, although if participants have experience with the tablet/console version of Minecraft and are also fluent with computer games that use the mouse and keyboard to look around (games like “Overwatch” or “Fortnite” are popular examples of this type of game), that should be fine.
Participants must have a Java Minecraft account and be able to log in to their account on their own (parents may provide us with the login and password to log on participants from groups if that is preferred).
We’ll provide computers for use during sessions.
