The Game: Background
The Game is a partnership involving Fuse, Connect Community Trust, The Pavillion, Glasgow Kelvin College, Innerzone, The Connie and The Calvay Centre and is funded by The Scottish Government’s Investing in Communities Fund.
Through The Game, our partnership aims to promote the participation and inclusion of young people in Glasgow East, and to contribute to the Scottish Government National Performance Framework.
During The Game, each partner organisation delivers their own programme of youth work, with focuses on themes including Participation, Mental Health & Wellbeing, Digital Inclusion, Attainment, and Climate Action. Young people across Glasgow East who participate in these activities are in turn awarded with points which they can collect - the winners of each youth club and category can win prizes worth up to £250. The number of points that young people are awarded are dependent of their level of participation, and their learning outcomes as a result of their engagement in each activity.
By incentivising young people to participate in youth club activities, we support young people to learn new life skills, make better life choices, and gain accreditation.
Points are accumulated between the start and end of each competition/edition. We have just completed The Game 7 (June- August 2022), but we will be back in Autumn 2022 for our eigth edition. Winners are from the following categories:
Members of our Juniors drop-in (P5 to P7). Winners in the top three places (1st Place = most points, 2nd place = 2nd highest points, 3rd place = 3rd highest points) are awarded with a certificate and gift vouchers with values of up to £250.
Members of our Seniors drop-in (S1 to 18 years old). Winners in the top three places (1st Place = most points, 2nd place = 2nd highest points, 3rd place = 3rd highest points) are awarded with a certificate and gift vouchers with values of up to £250.
