We recruit year-round for three types of volunteering:
- Player 2: This initiative pairs gamers with long-term volunteer positions in hospitals. Spots are usually very limited in each hospital where the program exists. Player 2 requires a minimum commitment of approximately 6 months (service length may vary) and requires some daytime availability on weekdays. Weekend shifts are not typically offered. This position also requires a basic understanding of all major game consoles, along with A/V knowledge and troubleshooting capabilities. Player 2 volunteers must receive hospital training, and comply with health protocols (e.g. having necessary vaccines).
- GO Kart Race Crew: These volunteers participate in scheduled, one-off hospital visits to assist with GO Kart specific tasks that might include system updates, swapping Kart equipment, or GO Kart assembly!
- General or Event-Related Opportunities: These are chances to volunteer in ways that support our overall hospital efforts, but don’t necessarily require going to a hospital directly. Volunteering at our annual Gamers for Giving fundraiser is an example!
