Spend some quality 1 on 1 time with James; owner and operator of Your Corps, who has extensive experience mentoring with various government organizations, such as the High and Complex Needs Unit and Oranga Tamariki.
We strive to provide opportunities for children to engage in a grass-roots roots initiative for 'Electronic Sports'. We pride ourselves in providing the competition, hardware access and development of this industry locally.
We have the resources necessary to deliver educational experiences and qualifications to schools and children throughout the country, involving many subjects regarding technology, such as; building your own computer, learning operating systems and software packages, computer networking and robotics.
FULLY MOBILE DEPLOYMENT
Actively involved in numerous local communities, our fully mobile operation delivers a 3500kg pay-load of technology for kids all around New Zealand.
We can go anywhere, and bring all the action directly to you.
We host regular video game events throughout the country on a routine basis, providing opportunities for youth to engage and interact socially, situating around a common interest. A sense of community is derived from active involvement of participants, driving further development of social skills.
We've broken records with some of the South Islands largest events of their kind, while entirely dependant on a labour force consisting of High-School volunteers.
We are working with local corporates and businesses to intercept their redundant corporate machines from waste disposal, and are repurposing them to educate and entertain; extending their service life - instead of contributing to the 800,000 tonnes buried in NZ each year.
SUICIDE AWARENESS, PREVENTION AND COUNSELLING
The advantages our approach to technology brings, allows us to connect with vulnerable youth much more effectively, as we strive to create forums for youth to interact and engage with counsellors more consistently.
HEALTHY GAMING AND ONLINE SAFETY
We drive numerous opportunities for both children and parents to learn more about technology, and the associated risks. We also strive to educate healthy practices associated with video gaming, such as moderation and positive lifestyle choices, such as diet and exercise.
Our large scale events and popular demand of the activities we are able to provide enables us to be a frequent choice as a fundraising initiative, allowing us and all others involved to further drive and facilitate charitable objectives.
ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY
Our acquisition of modern technologies allows us to provide access for all youths, by delivering all the necessary hardware and expertise to facilitate widespread inclusion. This is accomplished through large scale public events, right down to providing subsidized technologies directly to deserving households.
ACTIVE SCHOOL BULLYING PREVENTION
Our gaming community extends from the digital battlefield and into the classrooms. Parents who express concern regarding their child becoming a victim of bullying, enables us to act, assigning a group of seniors from their school, who also attend our gaming events, to take them under their wing.
Please feel free to contact Your Corps regarding anything, such as information on upcoming events, or inquires about our organization. We would love to hear from you!
