Afterwards, Prince Harry visited the headquarters of GAME, an NGO with a mission to create lasting social change through youth-led street sports and culture, where he met young volunteers known as ‘Playmakers’ who are encouraged to take a role as peer educators, and leaders of activities for youth including those from less advantaged neighbourhoods. Prince Harry learned about these programmes and viewed activities including basketball, parkour, and dance classes, before hearing from young people for whom GAME has become an important part of their lives.
