About Player 1
Player 1's Video Gaming, Mentoring, Educational, Virtual Reality and Community Initiative fuses each child's favorite video games, student, parent, and community mentoring, real-world educational training, and an innovative approach to education to create an active and passive learning environment that not only exceedingly enhances a child's social and emotional development, but also heightens their critical thinking, communication, and decision-making skills.
We aim to establish a supportive and motivational setting that encourages the comprehensive development of our young people, encompassing their physical, emotional, and social well-being. We are dedicated to enhancing communication and mental development, with the goal of sparking a deep-rooted enthusiasm for education. Our mission is to inspire active participation in the community and equip them with the ability to create a meaningful and enduring difference in the world.
Unlike traditional career centers, which often take significant time to introduce qualified candidates into the workforce, our career enhancement curriculum provides rapid skills development. By harnessing the power of virtual and augmented reality technologies, the Player 1 Academy compresses the time required for training, enabling qualified individuals to enter the workforce more quickly. By focusing on the rapid development of a skilled workforce, the Player 1 Virtual and Augmented Career Academy not only meets the immediate needs of industries but also contributes to long-term economic growth and stability within economically depressed communities.
Macy's store managers and Macy's District Managers throughout New York State and Connecticut came down to volunteer at the Player 1 Academy. We are excited about this new partnership and our future collaborations.
