Chillennium is the largest student-run game jam in the world. The game jam runs for 48 hours straight, with hundreds of student contestants coming in from across the world in addition to industry professionals who act as mentors and judges.
To make it all work, we need your help.


Being a Volunteer

Time Commitment

As a volunteer, you must be able to commit to a minimum of 2 shifts of 4 hours each, totaling 8 hours of volunteer service to the game jam during the weekend. If you'd like to contribute more time towards the event, let us know! We are always happy to have a helping hand. If you are unable to commit 2 shifts due to other events, let us know and we can arrange something for you to still be a volunteer; you can contact our Volunteer Chair, Carolyn Stocki, at chillennium.volunteers@gmail.com

Requirements

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and be a current student at Texas A&M University. Volunteers must also attend a mandatory training meeting, and be able to volunteer at least 2 shifts of 4 hours over the course of the weekend.

Be Punctual

Arrive 15 minutes before your shift with a smile and a driving passion for games.

Mandatory Meeting

You must attend a volunteer training meeting that will teach you everything you need to know about your time as a volunteer. We know schedules are crazy and we value your time, so for your convenience, we will be holding this meeting at three different times. You must sign up for ONE of these times. Please mark your calendars and plan well in advanced!

The trainings will occur the nights of October 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Langford C. Exact times and location will be announced in the coming weeks. If you still absolutely cannot make any of these times, you can contact Carolyn Stocki, our Volunteer Chair, at chillennium.volunteers@gmail.com
