Gavin Latz

Gavin facilitates ‘Gaming Unplugged’ with his sons at Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (in the Sharon Burridge Hall). Gavin is motivated to broaden the horizons of those he mentors through Gaming Unplugged. Gaming Unplugged was established by the Latz family in 2018 and is the brainchild of their middle son Liam Latz. The Latz’s are passionate about community and Gaming Unplugged is a program that creates an opportunity for upper primary through to young adults to socialise through board gaming.
