BE GREAT FOUNDATION INCORPORATED

Image_202104190926

Be Great Foundation has a mission to eradicate wealth, income and opportunity equality by providing STEM/STEAM SkillsEducation and Entrepreneurship training to youth and young adults from marginalized backgrounds.

We are currently seeking an instructor (4-6) hours per month to conduct a Game Design & Development course for students ages 12-14 and/or 15-17. We are flexible on the gaming platform but prefer Roblox, Minecraft or Unity as the goal is to offer students the opportunity to build real world skills in game design & development, and ultimately create their own game in a 6-8 week session.

At present, sessions can be conducted virtually, but we are also seeking instructors in the Greensboro, North Carolina area to conduct in person workshops in the future. If interested, please reply with a brief note about your experience with game development, a note about your experience working with kids if any, and a synopsis of a game that you created or developed.

About BE GREAT FOUNDATION INCORPORATED

Location:

900 HOBBS RD APT 124, GREENSBORO, NC 27410, US

Mission Statement

We advocate for economic empowerment by educating, equipping, and exposing people from marginalized communities to the jobs and businesses of the future through STEM events and programming.

Description

Black and Hispanic Americans, and people form other marginalized groups are twice as likely to be adversely impacted by the disruption of automation technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous devices, and the Internet of Things as counterparts of other races and cultures. Over 50% of all service based jobs are occupied by African Americans, though they only comprise 13% of the population in the United States. This disparity presents a mounting concern in an already wide gap in income, wealth, and economic opportunity.

Be Great Foundation Inc., a North Carolina based non-profit organization, was created to address such economic and opportunity disparities by advocating for STEM education, entrepreneurship and equity for underrepresented populations. We offer workshops, trainings, and resources aimed at helping individuals from underrepresented populations gain exposure to the skills of the future, while equipping them to create businesses and seek careers which embrace engineering and technology based approaches and paradigms.
