Volunteers at YIP

Yes, we need volunteers!

Volunteers support our work on all levels from judging at Young Inventors’ Program events to serving on our Advisory Board to advocating for us at local schools as ambassadors.

We match STEM professionals with local schools who are seeking help. Please note that volunteering in schools will require specific background checks.
