In Mentorship Track, League Of Pros members are mentoring mentees in our Interns International Program, Teaching in our Kids Of Code Program, or available as a resource to help local children’s hospitals and child life teams on best practices and troubleshooting for ensuring the success of our GFLX program.
Mentoring in Games For Love’s Interns International Program only requires a few hours a week to meet with your cohort as a group, and then a monthly one-on-one for each of your mentees. This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to the bright adults and young adults that one day will be the future of the Tech, STEM, and Gaming industries. It’s a low commitment, but high-impact opportunity to volunteer and give back to not just “the” community, but “our” community.
If you are passionate about helping to give children an education in STEM from a young age, Kids Of Code Program is the right fit. Kids Of Code offers two distinct ways to learn; Our On-Demand classes, and Live-sessions. On-Demand classes are brought to children by video to give them an opportunity to learn whenever they would like to learn, on-demand through our Learning Management Software using our Curriculum. The Live-Session classes are scheduled with students to give them an opportunity to learn, ask questions, and interact with other students in a collaborative environment that is built to be fun and engaging.
Every once in a while staff at Games For Love is unable to physically visit a children’s hospital when they are in need of light troubleshooting in person. This is where Mentors come in to help us assist our national, and international facilities and their Child-Life teams to bring a local presence connected to a representative at Games For Love. We can connect if there is a local request at a facility near you.
