(Dallas, TX – July 2, 2021) Esposure, a global esports technology company with a proprietary Education to Entertainment (E2E) ecosystem focused on developing the next generation of esports professionals and competitive gamers, has partnered with Dallas area nonprofit For Oak Cliff to introduce underserved youth to opportunities in esports. Aiming to liberate South Oak Cliff from systemic oppression through the core focus areas of education, community building, advocacy and art, For Oak Cliff is sponsoring ten local students who will attend Esposure’s E2E Esports Immersion camp this summer.

Esposure’s four-week virtual program provides an educational and fun experience for students as they explore the esports industry through a STEM.org-accredited curriculum on the core components of the industry: management, marketing, production, technology and competition. The students will build an esports brand, develop a content strategy and simulate running an organization in tandem with a live esports league to build problem solving and critical thinking skills.

“We admire the work that For Oak Cliff is doing to better the community, and we’re honored to be part of their efforts to empower youth with our esports programming,” said Danny Martin, CEO of Esposure. “The esports Immersion camp will help them build a valuable skillset and provide crucial knowledge about the viable career paths available in the esports industry. Our goal with our program is to educate, entertain, engage and empower, which is deeply aligned with the four pillars of For Oak Cliff: education, advocacy and community building. We are excited to partner and help build our community.”

For Oak Cliff, which began its mission in 2015 and became fiscally independent in 2020, serves the 75216 Superblock, a South Oak Cliff community in Dallas, Texas. The organization’s approach includes providing education, advocacy, community building, and arts to the community. The nonprofit is also wanting to create an atmosphere of creativity and education within the community, and Esposure’s partnership with For Oak Cliff will further this effort.

“We believe in creating a culture that sets higher expectations for the education of our children,” said Taylor Toynes, Executive Director of For Oak Cliff. “Esposure’s E2E esports Immersion Program is one way we can connect our youth to a high-quality learning environment while allowing them to explore different career paths in a fun way.”
