Gen Con isn't just about gaming; it's also about giving! Gamers giving back to the community is a key part of The Best Four Days in Gaming™!
Gen Con was pleased to host Indy Reads and Game Pathways as the Official 2023 Charity Partners!
Indy Reads builds literacy, English language, and job readiness skills to empower adults and families to reach their full potential. For nearly 40 years, we’ve worked toward a vision of 100% literacy for all. Current statistics show that 1 in 6 adults in Indiana read at or below a fifth-grade level. Through its in person and virtual Community Classrooms and workforce certification programs, Indy Reads helps adult learners increase their literacy and English language proficiency, prepare for their High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma, and build the workforce skills to improve their employability and advancement potential. Indy Reads proudly serves adults of all literacy skills levels, including the most beginning-level.Learn more at indyreads.org
Game Pathways seeks to improve representation and diversity in the tabletop gaming industry by increasing student awareness of career paths, introducing students to industry professionals, and working with game companies to engage under-represented groups. It is a nonprofit organization founded by industry professionals who care about inclusivity, creativity, and celebrating new voices!
