Volunteer

Join our volunteer team at the 2022 VEX Robotics World Championship, in Dallas, Texas. Get inspired by the brightest student minds in the world as they come together for a massive competition celebrating STEM education, collaboration, hard work, and year-round dedication.

We Need Volunteers of All Skill Levels

Many volunteer roles do not require previous experience, and we provide online training resources to prepare volunteers for most positions. Join our volunteer team, get inspired, and have fun! We are in greatest need of volunteers who can help all day or multiple days, but a wide variety of shifts are available to fit your schedule.

  • An average shift is 6-8 hours. Sign up for one shift, multiple shifts, and even multiple days if it suits your schedule.
  • Most roles receive a free t-shirt, meals and snacks, swag bag, and free parking.
  • Make it a family affair! Younger kids who can pay attention to directions make great Field Resetters, and we can pair you up in the same area to volunteer together in most cases.

Monday, April 15, will be the last day we will be assigning shifts prior to Worlds unless there is an important need. You may just come see us at the Volunteer Registration area and register onsite.

Please email volunteer@roboticseducation.org with any questions.

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

Teams will be notified, via email, if any event occurs that would jeopardize the VEX Robotics World Championship.
