Global Game Jam coming goes to college - volunteers needed


Mohawk College will be hosting Global Game Jam, the world's largest game creation event, in the DCC from January 26 to 28 and we are looking for volunteers.

Global Game Jam provides unique opportunities for people to create, collaborate, and practice their game-creation skills. People of all skill levels are invited to take part. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and make connections!

Request for volunteers

We are looking for student volunteers to help run the game jam. We are looking for volunteers to help participants register or sign in at the front of the DCC. Volunteers may also participate in the jam provided they can fulfill their duties.​

If you or someone you know is  interested in volunteering, please reply to Raphael Tetreault.

The Game Design program would appreciate if you would help spread the word of this event!
