We convene our community through the Annual Games for Change Festival, the largest industry-facing event in New York City. We inspire youth to explore civic issues and learn 21st-century and STEM skills through our Student Challenge and we train educators to run game design classes on impact games. We incubate and executive produce game projects through our game design challenges, workshops and consulting projects. We curate and evangelize games to the public through our public arcades and award shows.
Games for Change
I would like to pass along a volunteer opportunity to Columbia University Teachers College students on behalf of Games for Change (G4C), a non-profit that empowers game creators and innovators.
G4C is looking for volunteers for the 16th annual Games for Change Festival, taking place June 17th – June 19th at the Parsons School of Design at The New School in New York City.
Every year, the G4C Festival unites more than 1,000 people from the games, tech, education, and non-profit sector to collaborate and drive real world change. Notable speakers from previous years include Rajesh Anandan (UNICEF), Maxime Durand (Ubisoft Montréal), Kamal Sinclair (Sundance Institute), Gabriel Stricker (Niantic), Lauren Burmaster (Oculus), and many more!
G4C relies on the support of volunteers to help bring the Festival to life. In exchange for their assistance, volunteers are invited to attend part of the Festival, where they will hear from experts, share and explore groundbreaking ideas, and experience new impact games.
We are excited to invite your students to participate in the event. Would you be able to pass this opportunity along to the Columbia University Teachers College community?
For more information about the Festival, feel free to visit our website.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration,
