Calling All Volunteers!

Come volunteer at the 2018 Games for Change Festival, June 25th - June 30th! The G4C Festival is an event that brings together more than 800 people in the fields of gaming, technology, health, civics, and education to collaborate and drive real-world change. Taking place at the Parsons the New School of Design in NYC (66 5th Ave on 13th street), this year's Festival features three tracks of programming, each highlighting an emerging area of research and innovation within the games for impact sector: Civics & Social Impact, Neurogaming & Health, and The Games for Learning Summit. This year we are also presenting our XR for Change Summit, an event devoted to mixed reality projects including those that use VR, MR and AR. Every year, G4C relies on the support of volunteers to bring the Festival to life. We welcome your expertise and enthusiasm, as it helps elevate the experience for everyone. In exchange for volunteering, you are invited to attend part of the Festival, where you will hear from experts, share and explore groundbreaking ideas, and play new impact games. Make new friends, expand your network and have fun supporting the gaming, education, wellness, and social change communities. Anyone is welcome!
