Atlanta Mentor Application Form - G4C Student Challenge (2018-2019)
Games for Change is seeking experienced game designers and digital media professionals in Atlanta to provide mentorship for public school students participating in the G4C Student Challenge, a program in which middle and high school students create digital games about social issues. Mentors have the opportunity to work one-on-one with students at their schools, providing creative and technical expertise inside the classroom.

As a Student Challenge mentor, you will be connected with a participating classroom to help the next generation of game developers find their creative voice, retain motivation, and truly engage in the design process. Students hone their game making skills while coming to understand how their coursework applies to real world opportunities and careers.
