WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

YOUR TIME AND TALENTS CAN HELP BUILD AN AMAZING COMMUNITY FOR EDUCATORS.

Applications to volunteer are currently closed.

Serving as an ISTE Community Leader is a great way to volunteer with other passionate educators, share your expertise and give back to the education field. Whether you’re excited about STEM, digital citizenship, virtual reality (or other topics!), this is your chance to make a difference for educators near and far.

ISTE Community Leaders ...

  • Lead professional development activities as content experts in webinars, articles and more.
  • Answer questions and give advice in ISTE Connect, ISTE’s online member community.
  • Have opportunities to support the ISTE conference by being invited to review proposals, select must-see sessions for content areas, and even coordinate events like playgrounds.
  • Often go on to write ISTE books, author ISTE U courses or write for the ISTE Blog or EdSurge. Past volunteers have even gone on to serve on the ISTE Board of Directors.

Because of the help of people like you, educators pick ISTE for their peer-to-peer PD and building connections around the globe. Community Leaders are the lifeblood of ISTE, and there are opportunities to contribute as much or as little as you’d like. Most volunteers contribute one to five hours per month.

ISTE Community Leaders get ...

  • Opportunities to develop valuable professional skills through unique volunteer activities.
  • FREE ISTE swag, including T-shirts and other goodies.
  • Four FREE ISTE ebooks per year, to be voted on by volunteers.
  • Exclusive access to a private Slack workspace to connect and collaborate with other Community Leaders and ISTE staff.
  • Connection to like-minded, dedicated educators who are lifelong learners.
  • An exclusive recognition event at the annual ISTE conference.
  • A certificate recognizing your service and a digital badge in ISTE Connect.
  • Inclusion in our volunteer directory on iste.org (optional).

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS

"Volunteering has helped me to network with other like-minded professionals. I look forward to our meetings and interactions because I am always inspired by my colleagues from across the nation."

- Elizabeth Freeman, Assistant Superintendent of Innovation, Fremont School District 79
