Hack with a crew this week in the quest to earn points and complete challenges. Guilds are a great way to find a small community within the larger MLH hacker community at events such as Local Hack Day. Complete challenges together, enjoy hacking breaks and mini-events, and more all while making new friends and connections. Join one now by selecting one on Discord! Everytime you complete a challenge during the week of Learn, you’ll earn points for yourself and your guild.

There’s strength in numbers, so here are some pre-made marketing templates. Completing a journey is always more fun with friends, so share your guild with anyone you want to go on an adventure with - classmates, friends, family, and more! The more members your guild has, the more experience you'll earn.
