Subject: Volunteer Opportunity in Games & Interactive Media for Students at Hofstra University




I would like to pass along a volunteer opportunity for Hofstra University 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 (and colleagues!) to participate in the event.


If you haven’t already, would you be able to pass this opportunity along to the Hofstra University community?
