I donated $300 to this foundation to help support kids in low-income areas have access to alternative extra-curricular activities like esports. I truly believe that after school engagement is one of the best ways to improve a kid's chances of success later in life. And it's impossible to ignore that every kid in America is playing video games, why not support that level engagement, but in the classroom with competitive esports. I am really proud of what this organization stands for and look forward to it executing on its mission.
This charity has helped many high schoolers get funds to go to college! It gives kids the opportunity to earn scholarship money outside of "traditional" sports, which has opened the door for a lot of students who didn't otherwise have that opportunity!
And they are super nice and knowledgeable.
Great work for a bunch of kids in need! They really help break down the barrier of entry into esports for so many students.
I love the noble cause of VEF. Helping low income students to have better future through scholarships and grants is simply amaizing
I work with The High School Esports League in onboarding schools and for many schools the work the VEF does makes a huge difference. Their support for schools enables so many low income schools to have opportunities in esports and their tireless dedication makes a difference for educators and students alike.
Love what this foundation has done for students all around the country!
VEF has been a great partner in distributing funds to schools and educational institutions in need of financial assistance. The work they have done to promote and grow the esports and education industry has been widely praised among many educators, gamers, businesses, and parents alike.
I have taken all of their classes through the Esports Education Network (EEN). They are great courses and do a perfect job of introducing anyone, from minimal experience in the industry to professionals, into the esports industry, specifically with K12 and educational institutions. Growth in students and young adults through gaming is a major value of theirs, and Bubba (Director) and Coach Alne are the best people to help pursue that.
An amazing organization that really cares about creating opportunities for underserved communities. I saw a presentation by them at an online event and was blown away.
Providing scholarships and opportunities for students in the emerging field of esports in a very efficient and a proactive manner. Getting the help and education students need is one of the noblest goals one can think of, and VEF does an excellent doing that.
I've watched the Varisty Esports Foundation rise from an idea to an organization that is truely assisting eduators and students to achieve great things. Recently, I had a conversation with a school whose population was 100% on a free and reduced lunch program. These students do not have much, but with the help of VEF they are now able to enjoy access to STEM programs and engage their students in an Esports club. Particpation in the club is helping school attendance, GPA and overall behavior in school. To say that VEF is helping lives is an understatement. They are helping forge social emotional learning, opporutnity, and teamwork through the use of technology and gaming. This is a non-profit that I will support for many years to come.
We all know someone who does not like video games and is more than happy to tell you why. I worked with VEF to bring information to teachers and administrators about students gaming in education. Their passion for student education through gaming is contagious and exciting. Their mission bridges the gap between STEM and students with video games! They are working to level up our education system.
The Varsity Esports Foundation provides robust resources to help schools implement and grow their esports programs. Through rigorous vetting processes, they work to promote effective, research-based initiatives to encourage diversity, inclusiveness, suicide prevention, internet safety, and digital citizenship. Through these initiatives, they are advancing gaming literacy and helping to reduce the destructive behaviors sometimes associated with esports.
