Webdroid E-Sports & Technology will be a computer laboratory ideally located in district 2, the University District in Detroit aimed at engaging youth and young adults in e-sports and tech adjacent education platform.
Webdroid has recently piloted our curriculum and education platform within 3 of the Boys & Girls Clubs locations in Detroit and the surrounding area. Students were interviewed and applied to participate within one of the cohorts. They were granted monetary compensation for learning how to develop an e-sports team, how to conduct tournaments, recruiting members to their team and more. In addition, students were exposed to Industry Leaders, like the Red Wings, Ninja, and real e-sports players and teams. The day-to-day curriculum has been developed and executed by Webdroid.
Webdroid was founded by Joshua Ashford, a coding instructor, and web designer from Detroit who saw a need for more innovative spaces aimed at engaging youth, and helping to restore safe, walkable areas within Detroit.
We want to bring a series of e-sports labs to Detroit aimed at engaging youth ages high school-college. Many incredible opportunities lie ahead for the young people who would benefit from this program. Tangibles include Scholarships, cash prizes for winning tournaments, brand sponsorships, and more.
