Volunteer Innovator Program (VIP)

The Heart of The Tech

Each volunteer is a key component of The Tech’s mission to inspire the innovator in everyone. We do this through exhibits, content, and programs that encourage hands-on learning. 

Volunteers interested in joining the Volunteer Innovator Program (VIP) will need to attend a 3.5 hour orientation and tour at The Tech Interactive. These orientations are offered every month.
