Our goal as an affiliate is to connect students to college and career readiness opportunities through esports. CCIU and PSEL are passionate about providing equity-based career opportunities to all students in Pennsylvania through esports.
There is a growing trend of young students playing video games competitively and an increasing need for STEM & computer science skills in the workforce. While participating in esports that include educational activities and concepts, students can also build vital STEM and teamwork skills that prepare them for future college and career paths. Esports also allows for inclusivity, as students of all abilities can join school teams and tournament play.
