Want to get involved in the gaming community? Have a bit of experience you can share? These opportunities are for you!

WQED is hosting 2 workshops (one in November and one during the Global Game Jam in January) for middle school kids. These workshops are opportunities for teens to learn more about video game development and enhance their skills!

WQED is searching for the following:

Game On Coordinator:
WQED’s Game On Coordinator has a background in games, events management, and a passion for emphasizing that games can be educational. Previous work with children in the 5th – 12th grade is a plus. This hourly position is flexible for your schedule but the Coordinator will need to be at the events on Saturdays. Needed: 1 passionate person to help us create and grow wonderful gaming workshops for our community.

Game On Coach:
WQED’s Game On Coach’s take small teams of middle schoolers or educators and help them work through gaming processes – storyboarding, design, narrative, mechanics – and should be familiar with the National STEM Video Game challenge as well as national resources to help kids, teachers, and parents build and play games. Needed: 6 – 8 people who will receive an honorarium for their coaching participation for workshop days.

Please contact Jen Stancil at jstancil@wqed.org with resume and cover letter.
