Youth who want to learn about mentoring and gain valuable work experience while helping other young people people might take a look at the Pixel Arts high school internship program.
About Pixel Arts
To get started, visit their website and learn more about Pixelarts. They bring inspiring classes to libraries and community gathering spaces. Pixel Arts focuses on young people’s natural affinity for games–board games and video games alike, and teaches them how to be game creators instead of just consumers.
About the internships
