Why Join ConnCEL?
World Wide Youth Networks (WWYN) presents... the Connecticut Consolidated Esports League (ConnCEL)! ConnCEL brings scholastic Esports and career exploration in the digital arts and sciences to youth that are not on high school varsity teams, through middle school and after school programs for youth age 13 to 18. ConnCEL, as a NASEF affiliate, offers multiyear career training in STEAM fields related to Esports and gaming. And, because of our relationship with college coaches, we provide college recruitment opportunities for youth interested in pursuing Esports at the college level.
We want to build a better, safer digital world through Esports. Our Mission is to bring youth from around the State of Connecticut together to compete, learn about educational and career opportunities in the digital arts and sciences and promote digital citizenry and equity. We're connecting Connecticut's youth, one game at a time.
Building Winning Strategies with WWYN
ConnCEL is an initiative of World Wide Youth Networks (WWYN). Using the digital arts and sciences, WWYN fights alongside marginalized youth, youth organizations, educational institutions and industry professionals to create safe, secure digital spaces designed to empower gifted, but marginalized, youth around the world. Our purpose network is built on the belief that collaboration and community building are the foundations upon which youth empowerment, critically conscious youth development, and youth advocacy are built, become successful and sustainable. Our mission takes us beyond simply networking with youth organizations, but also organizing around building the infrastructure needed to combat the disparities in digital equity in the policies and the industries that make up the backbone of our 21st Century digital economy.
