DePaul's College of Computing and Digital Media has several programs that engage students in enjoyable and educational endeavors that build their skill sets, confidence, and connections. The School of Cinematic Arts has partnered for several years with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) on a program that pays youth residents of CHA housing to participate in documentary filmmaking, screenwriting and design. DeSports involves students at two Chicago Public Schools (CPS) in e-sports to develop collaboration, communication and critical-thinking skills. Middle-school girls in CPS participate STEM-oriented pursuits as part of Digital Youth Divas.
