The Belfast Co-op’s Common Cents group for December is The Game Loft! Every shopper may ’round-up’ their purchases at the Co-op to donate to our monthly recipient. 100% of all donations received through Common Cents go on to each month’s group.
The mission of The Game Loft is to promote Positive Youth Development through non-electronic games and community involvement.
What is The Game Loft?
The Game Loft’s vision is a community where all people are valued regardless of age; where youth become resources with meaningful roles and responsibilities for positive community change; where disabled youth, juvenile offenders, the bullied, the ostracized, and all who feel voiceless are heard and respected; and where willing volunteers of all ages work to improve the life of their community.
Game Loft Values
We play well
We believe that hard work and commitment bring more success than talent alone
We believe that doing one’s best is always important
We believe that through play and work our kids become competent, confident, caring, contributing, and connected adults
The Game Loft’s out-of-school programs are FREE to all Waldo County youth ages 6-18. I Know ME takes place at Mount View Middle School once a week for two hours plus scheduled field trips.
The program’s goals are to guide young people aged 6-18 to become confident, competent, caring, contributing, and connected adults. Youth who attend the Game Loft’s programs are given opportunities to serve their community and gaming experiences that lead to increased knowledge and understanding of themselves and the world.
