why host an ithrive studio?

When you host an iThrive Studio at your school or teen-serving organization, we work with you to create opportunities for teens to recognize and apply their strengths while exercising their creativity in designing games and learning new ways to approach problem-solving with art, design, storytelling, and systems thinking.

what makes ITHRIVE STUDIO unique?

Teens use and expand on their social and emotional skills while they play, analyze, and design games. 

iThrive Studio:

  • Offers teens opportunities to voice their experiences and express themselves through the art of game design

  • Reinforces teens’ development of design, technology, and collaborative skills

  • Builds teens’ social-emotional skills

  • Creates an opportunity for teens to use system thinking to understand the world and how to change the world for good 

what are teens saying?

Students say that designing games with iThrive Studio:

“… has definitely given me confidence in what I think I can do, but it also helped me think about how I could build off of other people’s ideas in order to reach one progressive goal.”

Youth, 13, from the Boys and Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster

…helped me to understand myself more and how I felt, and this program also helped me understand how I thought my friends would feel and if we could work together to find a solution to the games.”

Youth, 14, from the Boys and Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster
