Learn to Play Minecraft

Youth with disabilities, 12 yrs + and their siblings who reside within Elgin/Middlesex, Huron/Perth, Grey/Bruce & Oxford County.

What to Expect

Has your youth expressed an interest in Minecraft but never had the opportunity to play? Join us for this "Learn to Play Minecraft" group where participants will learn how to play and have fun with other youth. Every Monday, we'll work together to build our home base, collect resources, and survive through the nights. Through playing Minecraft together, participants will have the opportunity to interact with other youth, learn how to communicate effectively, and work together to overcome challenges. They will be encouraged to express themselves creatively and share their ideas with others, building confidence and self-esteem.

We will have all the equipment necessary for the youth to play - no need to bring anything but yourself!

Participant Criteria:

  • TVCC client 12+
  • Able to participate in group discussion with minimal support; participants are welcome to have a support person present to assist them
  • Able to use a computer
  • No or limited experience playing Minecraft

This program is facilitated by TVCC's Horizons Youth Program and TVCC's Wellness Project. The Wellness Project is a three-year program aimed at rebuilding and enhancing mental wellness for youth and their families. We understand that the past few years have brought unique challenges, and we want to help. We're running programs with a focus on connection, mindfulness, physical activity, and new skills.
