Volunteers are our secret sauce!
ISTE greatly values and appreciates the many volunteers that make the conference a huge success! We (literally) couldn’t do it without you.
If you’re pondering jumping in to help, here’s what you need to know:
- Connections abound. Volunteering makes you part of a special community that drives the conference’s success.
- Skill-building happens. Along the way, you’ll learn a new skill or two that you can bring back to your organization or use to enhance your resume.
- Find your BFF. We see it every year. Volunteers make connections to other educators that reach well beyond their shifts and into their lives beyond the ISTE conference.
- Learning is a bonus. Volunteers help monitor virtual sessions, so you’ll get to learn while you assist with the event.
Getting on board is easy! And newbies are welcome; you don’t have to be a seasoned veteran to help out. You’re eligible if:
- You’re registered. Signing up for ISTELive 21 is step one!
- You’re flexible. If you can flex your schedule and be available at various times during conference, you’re good to go!
- You’re reliable. Report for duty on time and ready to go!
- You’re perky. We’re looking for folks with a positive, helpful, friendly disposition.

“As a virtual volunteer, I was able to support presenters as they set up their stations and prepared for their presentations. Prior to the actual conference I was fully trained in the platform and was able to ask questions about the process. It was such a great experience and I’d do it again if offered the opportunity.” – Hue-An Wren, Teacher on Special Assignment, California
