About VGC Foundation
VGC Foundation is a California public benefit corporation and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to consistently providing education on the history of video game and computer technology, and providing education on video game safety. Video and computer games play a larger role in our lives, and many people in our society are not aware of the many safety concerns that exist with online gaming. With this in mind, we host events that show guests the history of video game and computer technology. People not only get an opportunity to play every game console ever made for the last 50 years, they also get an educational experience from it. Workshops and panel discussions educate on video game safety, time management, and sportsmanship. Workshops also feature educational experiences in game design, computer programming, computer building and repair, voice acting, and animation. We hold small workshops and panel discussions throughout the year with local schools, youth organizations, video game clubs, and conventions on video game and computer game safety.
