Nov 27, 2017

The Game Loft, a Waldo County-based afterschool program dedicated to promoting positive youth development through non-electronic games and community involvement, has announced the start of its newest program, I Know ME.

The program is designed to guide 10 youths per year for the next six years as they study all facets of the state of Maine through trips, games and other afterschool adventures. Seventh-graders attending Mount View Middle School can apply by Dec. 9 to take part in the program beginning Jan. 9.

I Know ME aims to engage kids with Maine’s history, geography, economics, people, promise and challenges, while instilling within them a strong sense of self and place.

Programming focuses on field trips, educational enrichment, helping kids become comfortable with themselves and others, games, conversation, decision-making and travel.

Specially trained staff and volunteers ensure that the program provides food, friend, and safety while encouraging kids to become: caring, connected, confident, competent and contributing.

Grant funding by the Emanuel & Pauline A. Lerner Foundation will make I Know ME available to participating families at no cost.

For more information or to apply, contact info@thegameloft.org, Stephen Colby at 338-6447, or Dan Pierce (Mount View guidance) at (568-4605.

I Know ME is a program of relationships and broadening horizons based on Trekkers youth development principles.
