Volunteer at the Portland Indie Speed Run

We need your help to provide a safe, hands-on, and fun jamming environment in a mini game jam for youth aged 9-17!

In the midst of a 48 hour game-making challenge, youth are welcome to join the fun during set daylight hours! The youth jam will be held at the University of Portland on September 28th and September 29th from 1pm-7pm both days. We need volunteers to help guide youth through the process of making a game, whether through encouragement, collaboration, specialized knowledge of game topics, providing feedback, or helping youth shadow other game jammers.

Full details about the jam can be found here. Volunteers are welcome to both participate in the jam and mentor youth as long as they are fully committed to needs of the youth jam during youth jam hours. Volunteers are also required to attend our volunteer training on September 23rd at 12pm or September 24th at 5:30pm.
