Volunteer Champions

Volunteer Champion applications are currently closed. Please visit your volunteer menu to schedule Event Support volunteer positions.

Champions are dedicated attendees who are willing to volunteer 10 hours of their time before and during the conference in exchange for a registration refund. Although we are doubling the number of ISTE Volunteer Champions in 2016, we regret that we may not be able to utilize every applicant.

Prior to the conference, Volunteer Champions will:

  • Attend a virtual orientation in early June.
  • Read materials and FAQs provided by the volunteer coordinator and prepare to accurately answer attendee questions.
  • Download and learn the basic functionality of the conference app.

At the conference, Volunteer Champions will:

  • Volunteer eight to ten hours at the conference.
