About Us.

Our Dream

We will establish Video Game Clubs in every school in the United States in order to promote safe spaces for kids to be kids.   No one should ever eat alone in a VGC world.

Our Story

Started in 2014 by three students and a teacher, the Career Magnet School Video Game Club has successfully raised thousands of dollars for charity and encouraged social activism in their local community.

Your Kids

VGCUSA.org is here to help you start a Video Game Club in your school. When you register your school, you will gain access to sample release forms and ideas for building your club into the most epic os socially active groups. 

Our Mission and Vision

  • We believe that through gaming clubs, students will break down the stereotypes imposed by the "cliques" and "labels" imposed by the American educational setting. 

  • It is our intention to develop and support socially active gaming clubs in every school in this country.

  • Through gaming we have the opportunity to teach social emotional skills and prepare all of our students to be college and career ready path. 

  • The Video Game Clubs of America will have at least one VGC in every state in the country.

  • VGCUSA will develop its National Board of Advisors to completion.

  • Organize a Wii Collection Drive and Fundraiser to create started kits for new clubs.

  • VGCUSA will host a series of Virtual and In Person events for middle and high school students.
