Mission Statement

Our quest is to defeat the demons of youth depression and suicide through the power of tabletop roleplaying games. Tabletop roleplaying games empower a player’s imagination, confidence, and social skills by challenging youth to work together to forge their path to glory. Grab some dice, create your character, and roll initiative as you make new friends and memories that will last a lifetime!

Description

Tabletop For Teens is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Davis County, Utah. Our primary focus is to provide "at risk" youth with opportunities to learn and grow through the unique setting of tabletop gaming.

Tabletop roleplaying games, such as Dungeons & Dragons, offer players a framework to act as special characters in a fantasy world where they decide their fates. Teens can work together and problem solve while they roleplay as heroes facing formidable challenges which force them to make decisions that will impact the outcome of their characters. These experiences play out in the theater of the mind allowing youth to grow in critical thinking, teamwork, empathy, and creativity.

We aim to help young people overcome the real struggles of depression, suicidal ideation, bullying, and homelessness, through the power of friendship and gaming.
