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.

  • FREE ISTE swag, including T-shirts and other goodies.
  • Four FREE ISTE ebooks per year, to be voted on by volunteers.
