WE NEED VOLUNTEERS OF ALL SKILL LEVELS - Volunteer at the VEX Robotics World Championship and help make this event the best experience ever for our participating students! Many volunteer roles do not require previous experience, and we provide online training resources to prepare you for any position. Join our volunteer team, get inspired, and have fun!

An average shift is 6-8 hours, and you can sign up for one shift, multiple shifts, and even multiple days if it suits your schedule. Volunteers who can commit to an entire day or more will get a free t-shirt, meals and snacks, swag bag, and free parking. This year we are again offering self-scheduling online, making it easy for you to select and view your shifts from any computer or mobile device.

Make volunteering 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. Visit our VEX Worlds Volunteers page to learn about available volunteer positions and to sign up. We look forward to seeing you in Louisville!
