  • ESports After School Elite | Ohio Youth Development | Columbus

    Gaming Club Many parents recognize the impact that gaming has on their children's daily lives as young gamers engage in online video play using game consoles like Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, or PC gaming. Children are able to master games like Overwatch Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite, Madden NFL, NBA2K, FIFA, and more. Preparing children to become more than novice video game players but training children in grades 3-8 gives children the opportunity to gain knowledge in coding, and competitive advancement. We envision children who are normally excluded from competitive gaming, and video game development activities outside of school hours are afforded quality training, internet access to gaming equipment, peer competitions, and sponsorship. Contact us to sponsor or learn more about how we need your support. After-school gaming was created for children who may not have access to online gaming or outside school-time STEAM activities through competitive gaming and coding gaming development.

To Learn More Give Us a Call 1-614-732-4907 Our History ​ Ohio Youth Development (OYD) is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 to provide outside-school time programming to school-age children who are at risk due to racial and economic injustices. The organization's mission is to create a more just and equitable society by empowering the next generation of leaders. OYD aims to achieve this mission by providing after-school programs that promote educational equity, physical wellness, and social-emotional development for all children. OYD began its work in the summer of 2013, with a focus on life-skills activities for elementary and middle school children. The organization provided math and reading practice to maintain knowledge acquired during school time and improve children's reading abilities. Additionally, OYD encouraged children to stay active and eat healthy foods over the summer. In 2014, OYD was granted 501(C)(3) status, which allowed it to receive tax-deductible donations and grants. Between 2015 and 2018, the organization provided healthy cooking lessons and basketball conditioning and training to children in third through eighth grades. As of 2018, OYD has been offering after-school and summer programming in Columbus, Ohio. The organization has been able to facilitate year-round programming at the Havenwood Townhome Leasing Office Clubhouse, thanks to the in-kind space provided by ACRE Management Company. OYD has also received financial and in-kind support from individuals, businesses, foundations, and local government agencies, which has enabled it to continue serving at-risk children in Columbus, Ohio.
