A Great PureGame Team Because...

We care about youth.

Many kids lack the positive interactions needed to understand the negativity that surrounds them.

This lack of positive interaction produces feelings of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness.

PureGame exists to create and deliver programs that improve self-esteem, bolster mental health, increase resiliency, and help combat negative feelings.

Values of a Winning Team

Caring Mentors: We are the Champions who guide and teach kids the indispensable life skills they needed to be successful.

Relentlessly Optimistic: We know all young people are gifted and talented and can make the world a better place; they deserve to thrive.

Radically Empathetic: We feel for those we work and play with, we care for them and let them understand their lives matter.

Playful Heart: We understand that kids learn through play, so we meet them where they are most at ease: outdoors and on the !eld.
