Our 2019 Partnership
We are so pleased to announce that the Let’s Play Program will be running SEL gaming events and programming this Fall at the AISD Corrections Satellite Campuses. These are the facilities where the district oversees the education of juveniles who are going through the criminal justice system.
This is a big milestone for our little program. Our SEL
gaming experiences were designed with this population in mind. If you’d like to help us continue this work, click the donate button below. A little short on cash? Like and share us on your favorite social channel. Oh, and if you’ve got an old Play Station or other pieces of gaming equipment you might want to donate, let us know!
Below is a little preview of some of the games and resources that we will use. Check back here for resource pages on our games. We will be steadily adding to our lists!
