Futures First Workforce Program


Conducted in Partnership with the Delaware State Department of Health and Social Services, our Futures First Workforce Development Program provides critical technical skills, through an innovative and fun Esports industry framework, that are desirable in the modern job market. This 3 month program provides participants with employable skills in the fields of programming & game design or marketing, live streaming, video editing, and event production. 

Paid training or paid internships with either FFG or a designated partner company are one of many program benefits. Applicants are reviewed and deemed eligible by the State of Delaware. Acceptance is not guaranteed. HR Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to apply!

Applications for our 5th cohort are now closed. We will reopen the application process in April for our Summer cohort (#6)!

"Since we began this work our goal has been to increase the number of students, especially youth of color, pursuing career opportunities in STEM fields. DHSS understood our vision from the beginning and recognized the power that gaming has to attract today's youth while providing critical technology and business skills that will lead to life changing outcomes. We are turning passions for gaming into rewarding careers, and are truly thankful for the opportunity to make an impact and build a new industry and workforce for Delaware. Futures First Gaming is the institution that provides the pathways for youth to unlock their true potential in order to change their fortunes and change the world.” - Stephen Sye, CEO & Co-Founder, Futures First Gaming
