Online Academic Enrichment - DimensionU

YMCA Staff and College Student Mentors at the Atherton YMCA will be hosting virtual game rooms using the online program called DimensionU. DimensionU has developed a digital game-based tool which is proven to increase and engage student learning. Games are available online and for mobile devices along with a complete online reporting module. Students can learn and retain math and language arts knowledge faster with DimensionU.

Youth will be provided an individualized one-year license and coaching from our college mentors on how to log in and play (and learn). Game rooms will be available weekly; however, youth can log in to play and learn on their own time.

Students complete simple placement questions when they first login and will only receive questions through their play that support their academic abilities. Youth of different ages and skill levels operate in the same room; however, identities and skill levels are not seen and there are no chat functions. Reports are available for parents to see individualized progress.
