oin our volunteer team at the 2023 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.

Register to Volunteer Here!

The last day to register as a volunteer is March 31, 2023.

Please email with any questions.
