Opportunities

Give a few hours

Shorter volunteer shifts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, allowing you to schedule 1-3 hour shifts based on your availability and preferences. These event support positions are perfect for attendees who have busy schedules at the conference or are new to ISTE. The job will be simple enough for you to learn in five minutes. Registration refunds are not available for this program and you will automatically have access to this program without completing an application. If this is you, watch your email for our shift scheduling announcement.

Apply to be a Volunteer Champion

Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the ISTE Conference. Volunteer Champions will complete four-hour shifts on two days or an eight-hour shift on one day of the conference. Volunteer Champions need to complete each shift in order to receive a registration fee refund. We regret that we may not be able to utilize every applicant. If you are not accepted as a Volunteer Champion, you will be able to help us with one of our shorter shifts as outlined above.

Volunteer Champions will not only guide attendees as they navigate the conference, but they also act as a resource to fellow volunteers.
