Founded in 2004, Games for Change is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that empowers game creators and social innovators to drive real-world impact through games and immersive media. We convene industry experts through our annual Games for Change Festival, inspire youth to explore civic issues and STEAM skills through our Student Challenge, and showcase leading impact-focused games and immersive experiences through live Arcades for the public.

XR for Change Initiative

XR for Change is a year-round initiative which strives to develop a community of practice for use of immersive media to address real-world challenges and drive social change. Initiative events like the XR4C Summit showcase premier projects and foster cross-sector collaboration.


The G4C Student Challenge invites middle and high school students to create digital games about real-world issues. Since its inception, the program has reached 32,000 students and trained over 400 teachers, resulting in the creation of nearly 3,000 games.
