The Youth Esports Program (YEP) is a project designed to legitimize esports and integrate it into schools’ sports programs. The project was created by Mineski Global and the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL).
Now, they have partnered with Riot Games Southeast Asia, one of the largest and well-known publishers in the esports industry. Through this partnership, students who are part of YEP will be able to gain access to Riot Games’ workshops and career talks, and participate in activities organized by Riot. Riot Games will support other student initiatives as well.
The Philippines has proven to be one of the most important markets for esports talents, and YEP promotes esports as a healthy, responsible, and legitimate extra-curricular activity. This foundation provides a strong backbone for finding the esports talents of the next generation.
