Get Involved

The MADE is an entirely volunteer-run organization, and we are always looking for fellow gamers to help out! As a MADE Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to get your hands dirty helping to run the museum from the get-go, with plenty of opportunities to make friends, learn new skills, and make your mark on a grassroots organization that will endure for years to come.

If you have technical skills and can help care for our herd of electronic devices old and new, fantastic!

Do you want to teach a class about some aspect of games or game-making? Also fantastic!

If not, come on down anyway! We always need help running the space and implementing new programs of all kinds. Several of our higher-level staff started out by doing exactly that.

The best way to get started is to come to one of our weekly volunteer meetings Wednesdays, 7PM, at The MADE (3400 Broadway in Oakland). If you can’t make it to one of those, no problem! Email our volunteer coordinator nick@themade.org for more info and / or to set up a time for on-boarding. Fill out our volunteer sign up sheet here.
