Find out if GAMER is right for you
We offer youth-focused GAMER programs for school aged children (ages 10+) as well as sessions for young adults.
genU GAMER venues are in Geelong, Werribee, Colac and Northcote.
Selected Gamer programs are available online for regional, remote and interstate participants.
If you are interested, please contact us! We’ll organise a time to chat or meet. We’ll ask about the games and things you love, and explain how GAMER works and answer your questions. If it sounds like something that you might enjoy, we can set up a free trial session (you can choose your level of involvement).
