  • Volunteer video game script narrative designer

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Help us expand our story beyond the completed episodes of a powerful tale about inclusion, disability, empathy and tolerance. We're looking for a script narrative designer to work with our team of writers for a unique make your own adventure kind of game/visual novel where the player makes choices for the main character that change the outcome of the game play and the outcome of each scene. The issues are disguised as a dark and gritty murder mystery, to pull the viewer in and have them stay for empathy. Our goal is to elevate the concept of disability from something seen as limited and niche using a unique project that has potential of having broad appeal while having a real message, meaning and purpose. We are developing the world's first video game about a character who finds himself in a wheelchair and goes through the five stages of grieving, elevating the concept of disability from something seen as limited and niche using a unique project that has potential of having broad appeal while having a real message, meaning and purpose. We are developing the world's first video game about a character who finds himself in a wheelchair and goes through the five stages of grieving after an accident. On his journey he is faced with a number of issues people in his life have faced he isn't aware of, from racism to abuse to homophobia. Our key message is that everybody has something they struggle with, although some issues are more visible than others. We want this project to turn into an educational program where people with disabilities and veterans can get skills to succeed in the competitive gaming industry while working on a project that talks about their community. And the same time, noting the rise of empathy in gaming we think it's a more powerful medium allowing users to experience real emotions from the safety of their couch. We are at the stage of producing a 2 scene demo for the game. Our team already includes interns and volunteers that have faced struggles in their life: wheelchair users, deaf and hard of hearing, chemo survivors, members of the LGBT community. We have the 5 episode summary and the first episode script. We are lacking the business development aspect that is required to secure our relatively smaller budget. The ideal candidate will be required to: - Offer constructive feedback to the writers via direct comments on their Google Docs scenes. - Identify inconsistencies and (when possible) offer solutions to any inconsistencies. - Attend half hour meetings every other week. The ideal write will: - Be able to follow a story-rich plot with multiple moving pieces. Be unafraid to offer their peers constructive criticism. - Have experience in storytelling or a desire to hone their skills in story editing! - Be very familiar with Google Drive, especially Google Docs. - Have internet and access to a computer or electronic device that can access Google Docs.

    Resource volunteers, are one branch of our team of peer support volunteers, serving a vital role in ensuring that our database is current and up to date.

Our hotline and online chat peer support volunteers talk with people from all over who often are in need of direct assistance and local support. Additionally our database is available online to the public at www.LGBTNearMe.org and is used by other mental h ealth organizations in their service to the community. The database is not static, like many others that can be found online, but live and dynamic because of resource volunteers who are constantly updating, removing outdated resources and seeking out new ones as our community grows and change. As a Resource Volunteer, you will play an incredibly important role in maintaining the integrity of the resources we provide to the LGBTQ community every day.

This is a volunteer position that isn’t for everyone, it requires a lot of detective work, but it can also be very rewarding. Being a Resource Volunteer you will get to see the hundreds of types of organizations that exist throughout the country. You will have a unique first hand view of the LGBTQ community most people never see, by exploring it though the resource side. ‚Äč We get hundreds of calls and chats a week, and the work you will be doing will directly help those in need, many who are first time callers and just beginning on their personal journey of discovery.

Since our inception in late 2009, we have loaned bicycles to over 350 participants who have collectively raised over $2.4 Million for important causes. Charities that have benefited to date include the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (via Team in Training), Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Diabetes Society, AIDS Lifecycle, Arthritis Foundation, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and more.
