Social Media: Prosocial Video Games for Violence Prevention

Update April 2022: Our work recognized as a Top-50 nonprofit program for innovation.

- - - - - -

Jennifer Ann's Group is a nonprofit charity preventing dating violence. Our most popular program is Gaming Against Violence through which we produce prosocial games about important topics impacting teens.

Our games are life changing and compelling. We need your help to share them.

Our games address topics such as consent, gaslighting, media literacy, and teen dating violence. We believe strongly in this approach to engaging, educating, and empowering young people. To date there are two published studies in peer-reviewed journals showing that our games are effective at changing unhealthy beliefs and attitudes after a single gameplay.

We are currently looking for a volunteer to help us with our social media presence.

We have accounts on many platforms and need your help to maintain those accounts. We also need help creating accounts on those platforms where we currently have no presence.

You must be:

  • over 18,
  • very reliable,
  • have excellent communication skills, and
  • be fluent in English.

It is preferable if you also:

  • are familiar with abuse prevention or have a public health background.

and:

  • are familiar with gaming culture and indie games.

We use Canva for creating graphics and Hootsuite for scheduling social media posts. These are easy to learn so it is nice, but not necessary, if you are familiar with these services.

Work may be performed anywhere in the world as this work will be done remotely. However, as we are in Atlanta it would be helpful if your time zone was close to ours so that we could have occasional conversations via Zoom.

►To become more famliar with our work you should play several of our free prosocial games at jag.itch.io. (Links are included to download some games from the App Store for free.) These games will give you an idea of the unique work that we are doing.
