GAME is a Danish based street sport NGO founded in 2002.
GAME’s mission is to create lasting social change through youth-led street sports and culture. The program is a fusion of different urban sports, dance, urban culture and an effort to bridge between differences. The activities are executed by a numerous group of young leaders trained by GAME as street basketball and street soccer coaches as well as dance and parkour instructors and event managers.
The young volunteers and rolemodels, GAME Playmaker, organize activities in 34 GAME zones in less advantaged neighborhoods in Denmark doing practices in street basket, parkour, dance and street soccer. GAME also operate indoor asphalt facilities, located in Copenhagen, Esbjerg, Aalborg and Viborg. GAME is also working in Lebanon, Somaliland, Jordan and Ghana and is starting activities in Tunisia and several countries in the EU.
Youth rolemodels in front
The youth leaders in GAME are called Playmakers. An important part of GAME’s activities is to offer an education to young people in order to empower them to take a role as peer educators. Over the past decade GAME has shown proof of concept when it comes to street sports and youth leadership.
