Because Destination Imagination® (DI) is a non-profit organization, almost everything we do is organized and executed by an extraordinary group of volunteers. There are over 35,000 volunteers worldwide that make Destination Imagination the extraordinary program it is!
Please consider joining us in this very rewarding and worthwhile process!
Volunteer Roles within Destination Imagination:
Love kids? Got snacks? Want to be part of an amazing development process? Team Managers are adults age 18 and up who facilitate DI teams of up to 7 kids. Many TMs are parents, teachers, or community members. Local training and most resources are provided. Very much a facilitative and coordinative role, rather than an instructor. For information on how to start a team, click here!
Coordinators help form teams within organizations, schools or districts, and provide leadership and support for Team Managers. For information on how to start teams, click here!
Engineers, theater and improv enthusiasts, scientists, (and those who may not be techies but love kids)----This one is for you! Appraisers watch team presentations and then award points according to established scoring rubrics at Tournaments. Typically a one-day commitment per season, plus just a few hours of training or orientation.
You name it. We need hands! Registration, greeters, merchandise sales desk, traffic directors, poster-hangers, scoreroom numbers crunchers, packet stuffers, refreshments, and the list goes on. Typically single or partial day assignments.
Subject Matter Contributor
There are always local needs for accountants, marketing or publicity specialists, grant writers, computer and systems experts, fundraisers, training specialists, and individuals with other areas of professional knowledge and skill to consult, advise, help with projects.
Regardless of your inspiration, or the amount of time you can contribute, we’ve got a rewarding opportunity for you! We’ll provide any training; although in most cases, there’s not much needed. Opportunities range from single-day commitments to those that will keep you as busy as you want to be!
