Why should you support this project?
Press Start is more than an arcade, it is a youth-led project supported by adult collaborators that emerged out of an almost year-long consultation process with over two hundred youth from the community. Recently reaffirmed, in a three-month long market research process,the desire for an arcade is real.
This project is supporting youth in developing a project that will allow the worker-owners of the co-op to learn new skills that are transferable to the rest of their lives. It is a project that seeks to work towards the betterment of the community with youth as the instigators of social change.
The arcade games are but a small part of what Press Start will offer.
