Games and Apps for Youth
Eight youth from the 'STARS' project, at Delisle Youth Services, came together over two weekends to collaborate with mindyourmind to create an online tool. The youth wanted to create something that would help others understand some of the words that we hear and/or use every day in the hopes that it breaks the barriers that constrict us from being ourselves. We also hope that it unites us to come together and fight various issues like stigma, discrimination, ignorance and hate.
This is the second collaboration mindyourmind did with Delisle Youth Services (DYS) in Toronto. This group, Sessions, focuses on drug awareness and harm reduction. After many hours brainstorming, rough sketches and discussions they decided on the "Getting High?" tool!
In Delisle's third project with mindyourmind, we had seven STARS youth collaborate to create an online tool. After lots of brainstorming, rough sketches and lots of snacks the group decided on Aerin the Ally! The youth wanted to create something that would help others understand that some of the words that we hear and/or use every day really hurt people. Help Aerin turn the negative and hurtful billboards into ones that are accepting of everyone.
