What We Do
Game with a Purpose
Fighting Social Issues
We are Nerds that can conquer the world by dinner, and be ready to do it again the next day!
We play games to combat PTSD, anxiety disorders, and bring our brethren back together.
Alpha Nerds Guild will supply Veterans that cannot afford a video game console or pc with one to bring them together. Veterans, law enforcement officers, and first responders must prove their status through our evaluation process.

Gaming for Life
Whatever social media that you are on, you can find us: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, YouTube, and of course many other gaming platforms like Discord, Xbox Live, PSN, WoW, and Twitch.
We are a non-profit (EIN# 82-3910181).
To provide a means to deliver a gaming console to a veteran/first responder that has been diagnosed with a psychological disorder related to their sacrifice for the American public.
What do we do?
Through donated funds, we purchase, and have delivered, a gaming system which will enable you to be a part of the Alpha Nerds online community and feel a part of a brother/sisterhood of like-minded individuals to use as a support network. You’ll also be given a “Nerd buddy” that will be there for your support and accountability should you feel you need it. We also offer free psychological care through the volunteers who are within the group that are trained and certified mental health care professionals.
