Alongside ReKTGlobal, FYG Foundation supports Junior Rogue, a semester-long professional gaming accelerator program that provides amateur Fortnite players with opportunities to succeed in esports. The program provides access to esports experts, resources and financial support to help fund gaming equipment, tournaments and hands-on opportunities. Students are also mentored by Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo, captain of Rogue’s Fortnite team and the first individual professional esports athlete to be sponsored by State Farm.
Junior Rogue players receive several unique benefits in addition to mentorship opportunities such as formal recognition by the Rogue organization, streaming and graphical assets for their social media and streaming channels, promotion on social media, access to select Find Your Grind Foundation events, and exclusive Junior Rogue merchandise. They attend weekly online seminars focused on the variety of careers available in the esports industry. Other activities include game nights, resume building and streamed online tournaments that will allow participants to showcase their improvements to the world.
